KORA RADELLA is a choreographer, movement teacher, performer, and artist. Radella’s choreography, including commissions and her work with BOOMERANG and Double-Edge Dance, has been performed in New York City at venues including Judson Church, Danspace Project, Dixon Place, 92Y, Center for Performance Research, Pioneer Works, and Roulette and in other locations nationally including the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, Pulse Art Fair in Miami, Art Prize in Grand Rapids, the Three River Arts Festival in Pittsburgh, and Cleveland Public Theatre and internationally at Berliner Festspiele in Berlin and Arts Arena in Paris at the invitation of renowned theater director Robert Wilson, as well as in Amsterdam, Barcelona, Basel, Brussels, and London. Wilson about BOOMERANG's evening-length work, Repercussion, wrote "Geometric choreography is counterpointed with moments of free movement, with intelligent and carefully thought out use of space." Noted for her use of "awkward grace," Radella researches being on the edge of control, pushing both physical and psychological balances. She was a recipient of an artist residency at Yaddo in 2016 and at Lake Studios Berlin in 2015, and of an Ohio Arts Excellence Award in 2014. She also was an artist-in-residence with BOOMERANG, a company she co-founded and co-directed, at the Watermill Center in 2016. Radella's primary teaching interests include contemporary dance technique via what she calls "riding resilience," improvisation, contact improvisation, and composition. Radella has a long-standing collaborative history, Double-Edge Dance, with composer/saxophonist Ross Feller and has collaborated with other contemporary musicians such as drummer Greg Saunier, pianist Adam Tendler, and violin duo String Noise. She is also a certified yoga teacher (500RYT). Radella has a Kenyon College dance faculty position that allows her flexibility to create special projects, do commissioned work, and teach master classes nationally and internationally.
