Madison Page is a dancer movement person who makes work that, with any luck, examines the relationships between people, process, and performance. Informed by a background in contemporary dance, her work proposes making dances from models of vulnerability and selfhood. She is currently an artist in residence at New Expressive Works in Portland, OR; her dances and collaborations have been featured recently at R/SF Projects (San Francisco), The Hammer Museum with collaborators Samantha Mohr, Caitlin Adams and Chelsea Rector, and Moskowitz Bayse Gallery with playwright Rachel Kauder Nalebuff in Los Angeles. She is a lifelong member of Alexx Shilling’s Modern Dancers of America, and in 2016 performed a live iteration of Shilling’s dance film The Other Side of Stillness with her virtual self at the Dance on Camera Festival at Lincoln Center in New York. She has danced and continues to dance for Laurel Jenkins, Kevin Williamson, Carol McDowell, Devika Wickremesinghe, and Caitlin Adams. She is a graduate of the World Arts and Cultures Department at The University of California, Los Angeles, and holds a certificate in Dance Theatre from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London, England.
Madison found Pilates amidst a career-threatening injury during her dance training in the UK. After a few months of the work, she returned to dance with an expanded sense of bodily awareness, strength, and inner confidence. Pilates prepared her body for not only the rigorous demands of concert dance, but also for daily, pain-free living. Maddy is a fully certified Classical Pilates instructor and also utilizes her dance/art background by involving imagery, somatic release practices, and dynamic breath in her sessions. She believes these principles, coupled with a relational approach to the work, gives a full bodied, highly restorative experience for her clients. She teaches privates at Midtown Pilates and home sessions in Eugene, OR. For those that wish to work remotely, Skypelates™ sessions (virtual sessions) are also offered. More info coming soon.
