Leslie Scott

company

At BODYART, we bring together artists across disciplines — this “creative community” approach is at the heart of what we do.

Founded in 2006, BODYART is a New York City-based dance theatre company whose artistic work creates a content based, emotionally charged and strongly visual dialogue with the audience through performances, research, and teaching. The company regularly collaborates with composers, video artists, set/fashion/lighting designers, poets, and theater artists. This “creative community” approach to creation is at the core of our mission.

CHOREOGRAPHY REEL

commissions

Working with students, universities, and repertory companies is an important part of my creative process.

Whether it’s resetting BODYART repertoire or creating something new in a traditional venue, site-specific, or for the camera, this direct work is such a pleasure. Please reach out if you have a collaboration in mind.
