Susan Marshall Artistic Director & Choreographer
The vast majority of Marshall’s dances have been created for and with New York based Susan Marshall & Company, an ensemble of dancers and designers working collaboratively under Marshall’s direction. Marshall has created dances for the Lyon Opera Ballet, Frankfurt Ballet, Mikhail Baryshnikov – her work has been in the repertory of Netherlands Danse Theatre, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, and Pacific Northwest Ballet among others. Marshall directed and choreographed the dance/opera Les Enfants Terribles in collaboration with Philip Glass, and provided the choreography and stage direction for Glass’s Book of Longing, and for music ensembles Asphalt Orchestra, and Eighth Blackbird. Marshall’s many awards include a MacArthur Fellowship, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and three New York Dance and Performance Awards (BESSIES) for Outstanding Choreographic Achievement. Since 2009, Marshall has been the Director of Dance at Princeton University’s Lewis Center for the Arts. In her current projects, Marshall co-creates and directs with artists from other disciplines including visual artists Suzanne Bocanegra, Martha Friedman, and composer Jason Treuting.
