Ann Carlson is a dancer, choreographer, and performance artist. She creates “dances that reflect and investigate the metaphor of the everyday” and are coauthored by the performers, who have included non-dancers, such as lawyers, doctors, and nuns (“the real-people series”). With a background in visual and performance art, Carlson often shows her work in unconventional dance sites, including museums, trains, and barnyards.
