'Deerdance', Patti Bradshaw

Patti Bradshaw makes new theater works of imagined lives of poets, shifting episodic images taken from nature, and the subject of a legendary photograph among other inspirations. Her projects employ puppets, costume, movement, text, projections, and performing objects in collaboration with performers of all disciplines. Visual charm, emotional impact, and metaphysical oddity combine to capture the humor, loneliness and poignancy of human circumstance.

She was a founding member of Pepatian along with Merian Soto and Pepon Osorio, danced with the Celeste Hastings’ Butoh Rockettes and was a member of Elaine Summers’ Dance and Film Company.  
Her object theater work has been seen in New York at St. Ann’s Warehouse, the 92nd St Y Harkness Dance Center, Danspace Project at St. Mark’s Church, New Dance Alliance’s Performance Mix, Dixon Place, Roulette Intermedium, Sarah Lawrence College, Dance Theater Workshop, and Judson Church among other venues in New York City, Europe and Japan.
