Selected Tank Artist Bios

robot hands is performance art by jeso o'neill (ihaverobothands.com). jeso is a movement/video/sound artist based in Brooklyn. She works exclusive with cakeface (cakefaceart.com) but has worked with many people in the past.

Fox Paw is a Brooklyn based exploratory music project formed by Brendan Byrne and Andrew Carter in late 2009. The luscious sounds of looped cello clash and compliment the dynamic arhythmic nature of their compositions allowing audiences to break from conventional ways of listening. The performance runs the gamut of 'new' music making techniques with elements of coding and digital music, electro-acoustic, homemade electronics, sampling/looping, and signal processing. Although Fox Paw performs mostly independently, they thoroughly enjoy undertaking interdisciplinary performances such as scoring dance pieces, participating in experimental theater, and generating live soundtracks for films. http://vimeo.com/brendanbyrne, http://deadfox.bandcamp.com/album/araska

Veronica Carnero is originally from San Jose, CA and received her BFA in Dance at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. She has performed with the Julian Barnett Project, Juliana F. May, Stephan Koplowitz, Teri and Oliver Steele, Free Radical Collective, Lauren Hale and many fellow artists. Her own work has been presented at The Ringside in Durham, NC, Galapagos Art Space with the WillB Summerarts Festivale, 60x60 and AUNTS. She is a certified Yoga Teacher through the Laughing Lotus College of Yoga. She is excited to be working with fellow artists Kate Atherton, Molly Merkler and Adam Scher on a dance/media collaboration to be shown at the Baryshnikov Arts Center in June.

Janet Werther/Motion Mix, Janet Werther is a recent graduate of the Sarah Lawrence College MFA under the direction of Sara Rudner. While at SLC Janet had the opportunity to perform in work by Trisha Brown, Susan Rethorst, Donna Uchizono and Meghan McCoy. Her work has been presented at DNA's Work in Progress, DTW's College Partnership Program, Movement Research Open Perform, Dance/NOW RAW, and p.art.ies @ the Tank as well as at Buffalo Infringement and most recently with the Rochester Contemporary Dance Collective. Newly formed, Janet Werther/Motion Mix is committed to making dances in which the performers are empowered with creative and physical agency and in which depth of investigation both physically and cognitively is paramount, suggesting nuance in meaning via subtle shifts in context achieved through construction and manipulation of the formal elements of dance making: human bodies moving in time, space, and with energy.

RAKIA! is a collective of movers and shakers committed to making over-the-top, character-driven dance work, based in everyday American archetypes. Using humor, hyper-femininity and beautiful bodies bursting over, under and through time and space, the goal of their work is to peel back the layers of the seemingly ridiculous to reveal a kernel of truth. Spearheaded by choreographer Rakia Seaborn, her work has appeared at The Slipper Room, The Tank, Dixon Place, La Mama, etc., and The St. Lawrence Arts Center.

Diana Crum likes to dance. She likes to teach dance too. She has an MFA from Hollins University and a BA from Columbia University. Her work has been shown at a lot of places around town and out of town. More info at www.dianacrumanddancers.org
