About Lucy Kerr:
Lucy Kerr is a choreographer, experimental filmmaker, performance and installation artist, and writer. Kerr holds a B.A. in Philosophy and a B.A. in Dance from The University of Texas at Austin and was the grand prize winner of the 2014 Co-op/George H. Mitchell Awards for Academic Excellence for her undergraduate thesis. Kerr was selected as a 2014-2016 LEIMAY Fellow in Brooklyn, NY. Her films have been screened by Dance Films Associations, Mono No Aware, and New Filmmakers at Anthology Film Archives, and her interdisciplinary performance and installation work has been presented at The Chimney NYC Video and Performance Festival (solo exhibition), IDIO Gallery (group exhibition), Co-Lab Projects (solo exhibition – Austin, TX), and CAVE home of LEIMAY (split bill). Kerr is interested in the dissonance between our reality and imagination, creating work that is minimal, melancholic, delicate, and strange. She is currently working on an evening-length work intersecting a two channel 16mm film and a performance that is being co-commissioned by Mono No Aware Center for Performance Research for Fall 2016. Kerr is a 2016 BEAT Festival Artist, and she is excited about presenting her film, performance, and site-specific installation work at the festival. Kerr also recently worked as the writer for LEIMAY’s publication accompanying the production of ‘borders’ at BAM. Her publications, merging philosophy and film and performance theory have also been used as coursework at UCLA. Her research includes existentialism, social theory, Eastern thought, and phenomenology.
