Ann Carlson borrows from the disciplines of dance, performance, theater, visual and conceptual art, often dismantling conventional boundaries between artist and subject. Ann’s work takes the form of solo dance/performance, site-specific projects, ensemble theatrical works and performance/video. In l986 Carlson began a series of performances made with and performed by people gathered together by a common profession, activity or shared passion. Lawyers, security officers, nuns, fly fishermen, poker players, physicians, gardeners, a farmer and her dairy cow have all performed in works by Carlson. Her Creative Capital supported project, The Symphonic Body, builds on this body of work; individuals come together in concert to renew and re-experience the artistry embedded in the everyday.
