Jen Rosenblit
        
Jen Rosenblit makes performance in New York City and Berlin. Rosenblit is a 2015-16 Movement Research artist-in-residence, a recipient of a 2016 MAP Fund, a 2014 New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award for Emerging Choreographer, an inaugural recipient of THE AWARD, a 2014-2015 workspace artist through LMCC, a 2013 Fellow at Insel Hombroich (Germany), a 2012 Grant to Artists from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, and a 2009 Fresh Tracks artist (Dance Theater Workshop). Rosenblit has received commissions from The Kitchen, New York Live Arts, Danspace Project, and Issue Project Room. Rosenblit was a part of MoMA PS1 Greater New York 2016.  Her recent work Clap Hands (2016) and the companion work Swivel Spot (2017) have lead her on an inquiry toward the uncanny and maintenance of care. Rosenblit has collaborated with artists including Young Jean Lee, Ryan McNamara, Yvonne Meier, Sasa Asentic, A.K. Burns, Kerry Downey, Anne Imhof, Miguel Gutierrez, and currently Simone Aughterlony. Rosenblit is currently researching Stand In, a new work centering around the game of chess to harness the battle, protection, creating a court and the operation of focus between opposing sides. Recent works focus on an improvisational approach to choreographic thought, locating ways of being together amidst impossible spaces.
