Born in New York City, Grisha Coleman is a writer, composer, performer and choreographer. After dancing with the Urban Bush Women for four years, Grisha created the music-performance group HOTMOUTH, which was nominated for a 1998 Drama Desk Award for “Most Unique Theatrical Experience.”
Grisha is currently a research fellow at The Studio For Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Mellon University. At Eyebeam, she is working on echo::system, a collaborative project drawing from the disciplines of biology/ecology, architecture and live performance. echo::system will be a series of imagined environments that can be explored as an installation or observed as a performance.
Inspired by natural and urban ecosystems, echo::system will use computer modeling and sensor technologies to construct an experience of nature with dynamic patterns all of its own.
