Alethea PaceFresh Tracks 2017-18 Artist
Alethea Pace is a Bronx-based dancer and choreographer. Integrating choreography, text and video, her performance work explores ambiguity, uncertainty and the in-between especially within the context of race and identity. Her movement style reflects a hybrid of forms, contemporary modern dance and dances of the African diaspora, that seek to articulate complexity in rhythm, emotion and memory. Her work has been presented by No Longer Empty, the Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance (BAAD!), Pregones Theater, the Bronx Bards Series, WestFest Dance and the Andrew Freedman House. As a dancer she has had the opportunity to perform locally, nationally and internationally with a variety of choreographers including Karl Anderson/ Slam Fest, Arthur Aviles/Arthur Aviles Typical Theatre, Doug Elkins/And Friends, Sita Frederick/ Areytos Performance Works, Maia Claire Garrison/M’zawa Dance, Joanna Haigood, Paloma Macgregor/Angela’s Pulse, Marta Renzi and Richard Rivera/ Physual. Alethea has received the Bronx Recognizes Its Own Award, the 2016 Pepatian Open Call Residency and the 2017 Laundromat Project Fellowship.
