RANDY REYES

Randy is a queer Latinx choreographer-dance artist-curanderx with roots connecting the geographies of Guatemala, Massachusetts, NYC, Germany, Chile, Ecuador, & Nicaragua. During their time in NYC, Randy worked closely with choreographer/master teacher, Daria Faïn, studying Chinese Energetics & Systems of Improvisation as an ensemble member of her collective The Commons Choir, co-facilitated with Robert Kocik. In NYC, Randy developed the ritual-accion Never Arriving as a selected emerging choreographer for the Work Up 2.0 series at Gibney Dance Center, was a cohort member in the Hemispheric Institute for Performance & Politics EMERGENYC program, and interned with Movement Research, all between Aug. 2015 - July 2016. Currently, Randy will be excavating a new piece this summer as part of the Performing Diaspora ARC program at CounterPulse and will relocate to Los Angeles to begin an MFA in Dance program at UCLA this fall with the intention to continue weaving together the places-mentors-magick that has inspired them.
