Julianna May

Juliana F. May, a New York City native, started MAYDANCE in 2002. Recently commissioned by The Chocolate Factory Theater (Queens, NY) to create Discrete Body Dilemma (April 2009), May has also been produced by Joyce SoHo, Movement Research, Dance New Amsterdam, The Catch Series and Dance Theater Workshop. May's work has also been featured in dance festivals throughout the United States and abroad, including a commission by the International Contemporary Ensemble (I.C.E.) in Chicago, Illinois and The Repertory Project, a Cleveland-based company. In October of 2007, Dance Theater Workshop sent May to Athens, Greece for the Balkan Dance Platform. May was one of two artists selected to travel to Greece with full support from the Suitcase Fund. Development of new work takes place in New York City, where the company is based. May is currently an adjunct Professor of dance at Barnard College of Columbia University and this spring the company will be in Residence at the Brooklyn Arts Exchange for six months. May's newest evening length work will premiere in the spring of 2011 at Dance Theater Workshop.
