Elle Hong is an antidisciplinary artist currently based in Cheyenne/Ute/Arapaho Territories (Denver, CO). She holds an MFA in Choreography with a Graduate Certificate in Emergent Technologies & Media Arts Practice from the University of Colorado Boulder, and a BA in Dance & Sociology from Wesleyan University. Elle provides dramaturgical support for artists Helanius J. Wilkins (“The Conversation Series: Stitching the Geopolitical Quilt to Re-Body Belonging”) and LA Samuelson (“Telegraph Valley”), and has toured as a performer for Michelle Ellsworth (“Evidence of Labor”; “Post-Verbal Social Network”).
Current research interests include improvisational processing as making, ease/effort, being/nothingness, dis/embodiments of femininity, and risk. Ultimately, she aims to feel radically present while in a state of complete dissociation, or, is trying to embody the moment/train for the times. Her work uses dance as a primary text for transcending the (representational) limitations of the body.
