The Mimi Garrard Dance Company has intrigued and delighted audiences across the country and abroad, and has, as the Los Angeles Times put it, opened eyes, stretched ears, caused laughter, and provoked thoughts. The company has toured extensively since 1973. It has performed at the Jacobs Pillow Dance Festival, been commissioned for CBS Camera Three and WGBH Boston television productions, as well as presented annual concerts in New York and residency programs for colleges and community centers throughout the United States. On three occasions it has performed as part of an international dance festival, Danza Nueva, in Lima, Peru. The companys repertory of over 90 works choreographed by Mimi Garrard is one of the largest in the modern dance field.
The works have evolved and changed over the years, but they reflect Garrards interest in pure movement, theater, and multi-edia. |
Most recently Mimi Garrard is experimenting in new ways, creating dance for video using digital techniques to transform the dance material. Her work in this area is unique and is gaining increasing attention. She has a monthly program on Manhattan Neighborhood Network, and has recently been sponsored by Channel 13 on its Metro Arts Channel. WAMtv (World, Art, and Music), based in Scotland, is currently featuring her videos worldwide.
In addition to the United States, her video work has been shown in numerous festivals in Europe, Asia, Africa, and South America. Recently, Velez October Circles was shown on the BBC Big Screen throughout England five times a day for two weeks. Time Installation was placed in the permanent collection of the Mississipi Museum of Art. Doctrine of Signatures and Dream State were shown at the Walter Reade Theater at Lincoln Center in a program honoring Alwin Nikolais. She has had two one-woman presentations in São Carlos, Brazil. She received a lifetime achievement award from the Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters for her outstanding achievement in dance, both for her work on stage and her work for video. She has created 153 programs for Manhattan Neighborhood Network.
