Lane Gifford is artistic director of LaneCoArts, a New York-based multi-arts company that examines the intersecting relationship between dance, theater and the visual arts. After attending Purchase College Conservatory of Dance, Lane Gifford founded LaneCoArts in 2006 with a mission to create physically charged dance dramas that reflect meaningful social issues and expand the language of movement through lenses of drama, visual arts, film and sound. Her multi-arts approach to dance grew from her early experiences living and working abroad as a dancer, developed with her experiments as both artist and choreographer and later evolved as she entered the film industry as a designer/producer with Sony Music. In her dance theater works, Lane Gifford explores communication in today’s technologically driven world through a process of collaboration with other artists where the juxtaposed creative languages, engender a process of cross-pollination. The goal is to connect with today’s audience through critical commentary and physically charged dance theater works.
