Christy Fisher is a movement based artist who draws inspiration from culturally diverse movement forms, often blending elements with contemporary western approaches. Working collaboratively and in multidisciplinary contexts, she approaches each project as a process of stripping away to find what is authentic, real and spontaneous. Internationally recognized collaborators include the Fisher Ensemble; composers Amy Denio and Susie Kozawa; artists Kristin Tollefson and Louise McCagg; choreographers, Sharon Mansur and Sheri Brown, and literary and performance artist, Amontaine Aurore. Fisher has also been honored to perform in the work of Haruko Nishimura (Seattle) and as a company member of Works/Laura Glenn Dance (NYC).
Fisher’s work has been described as:
“wonderfully archetypal” (Seattle Weekly)
“With movement precision both elastic and talon sharp” (Seattle, PI)
“fierce and urgent” (The New York Times)
Fisher has received support from the Seattle Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs and from 4Culture Individual Artist Projects. She has been part of collaborative teams that have received funding from King County Site Specific Grants, Bossack-Heilbron Foundation, Wiggly World, and the Allied Arts Foundation.
