Erin Carlisle Norton:
In my modern technique classes I cultivate a physical movement approach that blends technical rigor with aesthetic specificity. I draw from my background as a Certified Movement Analyst in Laban Movement Analysis, balletic and modern dance forms, and studies in Ohad Naharin's Gaga movement language. This blend leads to a movement style that evokes powerful ranges of motion; surprising shapes, details, and nuances in the body; and the coverage and use of space through energy and athleticism. I am interested in training the body to be available for the possibility of physical extremes, whether this translates to an overall 'fierce' quality in the dancer or to a softness and expressiveness in the 'vulnerable' body.

Erin Carlisle Norton founded The Moving Architects on New Year's Day, 2007. Growing up in the nooks and crannies of a Victorian house and the Neo-Gothic church outside of Pittsburgh, PA where her father was pastor, she developed a heightened awareness of her experience of physical spaces long-steeped in the passage of time. As an artist she seeks to channel research of places, structures, their histories, and associated cultural transformations into choreography, exploring the embodiment of past and distant spaces in the heightened present of live performance.

Drawing from her training in Laban Movement Analysis and academic dance studies, Carlisle Norton takes a highly visual approach to choreography, assessing movement phrases based on their filmic as well as thematic properties. Her long-term creative partnership with composer/accompanist Ian Hatcher has led to "an unbroken string of potent, mysterious choreographies" (TimeOut Chicago, June 2011).

The Moving Architects have taught and performed throughout the United States. In March 2011, the company completed a tour of Central Asia sponsored by The U.S. Department of State and U.S. Embassies. In 2012 the company had a short residency as part of Tercer Festival Internacional de Danze Antigua, Guatemala City, and Norton was invited to teach and perform throughout Morocco with Association D'Fleur's Action 5 Dans Festival and sponsorship by the U.S. Embassy.

The company continues to research new projects in both community and international settings and explore the use of digital technologies as creative and conceptual tools. This has led Norton to research choreographic methods that look at 'distance' both virtually and culturally. The 2011 work PLUCK was choreographed and set long-distance via Skype video-conferencing software, and research is ongoing in the use of technology in connection to cross-cultural distance teaching, performance, and choreography projects.

Erin Carlisle Norton
Artistic Director
Erin Carlisle Norton, originally from the Pittsburgh area, is the Artistic Director of the 501c3 non-profit dance company The Moving Architects (TMA), founded in Chicago in 2007 and relocated to NYC in 2013. Stylistically praised as "Martha Graham meets Donnie Darko" by TimeOut Chicago, TMA is grounded in a movement approach that blends technical rigor with aesthetic specificity, drawing from Erin's background in Laban Movement Analysis, balletic and modern dance forms, and studies in Ohad Naharin's Gaga technique.

As Artistic Director of TMA, the company has toured and taught internationally through the US Department of State to Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan; Guatemala City; and throughout Morocco with the Action 5 Danse Festival and the US Embassy. In Chicago TMA has performed evening-length works notably at The Music Institute of Chicago, Fine Arts Building, St. Pauls Chapel, and Fasseas White Box Theater, and unconventional venues such as Welles Park Tennis Courts, Church of the Epiphany, and Hyde Park Art Center. National venues include Chez Bushwick (NYC), Links Hall (Chicago), Wilson College (PA), Wellspring Theater (MI), Columbus Dance Theater (OH), and dance festivals, showings, and showcases notably including Movement Research (DTW in NYC), The Other Dance Festival (Chicago), Sentry Theater (University of WI-Stevens Point), World Dance Alliance (University of WI-Madison), Dance-form Productions International Festival (KY), and the APAP/NYC conference at Dance New Amsterdam (NYC). The company has partnered on projects with organizations that include the Israeli Consulate of the Midwest, Chicago Bicentennial Celebrations, and Chicago Performs! Projects. In the company's inaugural NYC fall dance season, TMA will perform with Triskelion Arts COLLABFEST, Touch Theory at Peridance, Your Move Dance Festival, Movement Research Open Performance, and Green Space's Take Root.

Besides guest teaching internationally, Norton has taught as a guest artist or teaching faculty at dance studies, community centers, and universities, notably Ohio State, Beloit College, University of Chicago, Maine-Niles Center for Recreation, Wilson College, Columbus Dance Theater, and Western Michigan University, while also supporting international artists and company members through the "Airings and Sharings" performance series and dance classes, with guest artists that have included Noa Zuk (Israel), Joanie Audet (Toronto), and Ayako Kato (Chicago). Erin has been recipient of Columbus Dances Fellowship; curator of Chicago's Links Hall's Artistic Associates program and THAW annual benefit concert; sponsored artist for High Concept Laboratories; and multiple recipient of the Wilson College Artist Residency.

Erin and the company have received notable funding from the Richard H. Driehaus Foundation's grants (including grants for Small Theater and Dance Companies, Professional Development, and Chicago Performs! programs), MacArthur Foundation, Cliff Dweller's Art Foundation, Illinois Arts Council, Johnstone Fund for New Music, and CAAP Cultural Grants. Erin holds a MFA in Dance from Ohio State, is a Certified Laban Movement Analyst from Columbia College Chicago, and is a Pilates Instructor. As a graduate student, Erin was video editor and research assistant to Bebe Miller's Tracing History installation presented in conjunction with A History touring performances, while at OSU also receiving research awards including multiple dance department SFI Grants, The Ohio State International Award for Visual/Performing Arts, The Marianna Russell Technology Scholarship, and the Coca-Cola Critical Difference for Women Grant for working with women's groups in Morocco. The company continues to research new projects in both community and international settings and explore the use of digital technologies as creative and conceptual tools, leading Norton to continue researching choreographic methods that look at 'distance' both virtually and culturally.
