MUSICIAN CHOREOGRAPHER DANCER
Dreaming of beauty and collective catharsis...
Alison Clancy's haunting solo music performances weave tapestries of electric guitar into expansive, brooding drone-psyche Americana. Incantatory vocals expose both delicate vulnerability and gritty volatility. Alison summons ghosts from her machines. Recording projects mine a broader range of genres: trip-hop, shoegaze, dark disco, grunge, ambient experimental.
Alison's choreography for stage, film and multimedia projects is informed by her deep relationship with ballet and collaborations with Zvi Gotheiner, but her work subverts technique in exploration of primordial sensuality; Illuminating the authority of each body's authentic story. The approach is equal parts visceral and visual, with cinematic lighting and video installations. 2022 recipient of New York State Choreographer's Initiative Award.
Alison dances in sixteen productions at The Metropolitan Opera; currently performing the role of Manuelita in Carmen and dancing in The Hours and Romeo and Juliet. She has collaborated with many luminary choreographers, directors, photographers and musicians including Annie B Parson, Baz Luhrmann, Shen Wei, Phelim McDermott, Steven Hoggett, Bartlett Scher, Carolyn Choa, Kelly Devine, William Kentridge, Francois Girard, Carrie Cracknell, Ann Yee, Des McAnuff, Fiona Shaw, Martha Clarke, Gary Lucas.
