Lisa Naugle - Dancer

My work as a dancer stems from modern dance training New York City. In the past four years, I have performed 22 of my own works as a soloist, nationally and internationally to original music that was also performed live. This work has been presented in Berlin and Oldenburg, Germany; Krakow, Poland; Rome, Florence, Trani, and Bari Italy; Timisoara and Arad, Romania; Budapest, Hungary; Amsterdam, Holland; London, England; Vancouver, Canada and six states within the USA.

My approach to solo performance is improvisation based and often inspired by original music compositions. My work is increasingly collaborative in that many dances over the past four year have been part of evening-length multimedia events that include video and interactive technology.

Also see my work as a choreographer.
