Daniel Lepkoff

Beginning in the early ’70’s Daniel Lepkoff played a central role in the development of Release Technique with John Rolland and Mary Fulkerson, and Contact Improvisation with Steve Paxton. Through ongoing experimentation with new forms of performance, workshoping specific questions about movement, intense periods of personal movement research, and an onging stream of collaborations with improvising artists, Daniel has slowly expanded and deepened his understanding of functional movement and the presence of the imagination in the body. As a performer he is known for composing dances that arises from the process of living movement and as a teacher for his continual invention of original techniques, making direct contact with information and pursuing questions together with students. He is one of the founders of Movement Research in NYC. He works internationally and lives on a piece of land in Vermont.
