Karole Armitage (Choreographer/Director) was rigorously trained in classical ballet, and danced professionally with George Balanchine and Merce Cunningham before forming her New York based company, Armitage Gone! Dance in 1980. She is renowned for pushing the boundaries to create contemporary works that blend dance, music, science and the visual arts. Known as the “punk ballerina” Armitage’s work is at once both esoteric and popular. She has choreographed Broadway Productions, Videos for Madonna and Michael Jackson, several films for Merchant Ivory productions, a show for Cirque du Soleil and the Fall/Winter 2020/2021 Marc Jacobs Fashion show. In addition to creating over 100 works for her dance company, Armitage has directed operas and created new dance productions for major houses in the US and Europe.She was honored with an Honorary Doctorate of Arts from Kansas University in 2013, and a Radcliffe Fellowship at Harvard University in 2106 to study Native American Plains Culture. Armitage is currently an MIT Media Lab Directors Fellow.
