Emma Portner
Dancer / Choreographer

Dance is my life. It has kept me alive. Performance is a natural extension of it and through it. I’ve made my most cherished human connections. The more I perform, the more I understand what it is to choreograph, and the more I choreograph, the more I understand the real value of performance. I love to perform on stage, but am rarely given a stage for my “own” ideas to have a habitat. Dance has made me create my own stage and I’m just on it everyday – with or without the “traditional idea” of performance. Performing with people I love is when I am my happiest. I don’t really like to do a solo these days because I am a recluse in my real life. That’s not what I want to bring to people. I want to bring them what they don’t see walking down the street. I want to bring them the whole damn street. I want to bring them what I wish my world to be. What I wish the whole world could be. Not just my world.

    “A body of work starts by daydreaming…” –Mary Heilmann On May 2nd, we will open ‘Daydream Nation’ at its 22nd Street gallery, exploring Mary Heilmann’s ongoing interest in drawing as a form of transcribing memory.
