Brandon Powers Projects

 

Led by creative director + choreographer Brandon Powers, Brandon Powers Projects creates experiences across physical and virtual space. Our vision is to work across forms, platforms, and technologies and create a more embodied future. Brandon Powers Projects values a multidisciplinary approach and seeks to create multiplatform experiences that center on interactivity and audience agency while advocating for artists’ role as culture builders, interdisciplinary translators, and creative engines.

Brandon Powers is a creative director + choreographer whose work focuses on capturing liveness in the digital and shifting culture towards a more embodied future. Brandon’s key projects include VR saga Queerskins: ARK (Venice International Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Cannes XR), for which he created interactive volumetric choreography, and Frankenstein AI (Sundance Film Festival), an AI-powered immersive installation and performance. Through these experiences, he harnessed his knowledge as a movement practitioner to devise Embodiment Design, a methodology for designing more human-centered XR experiences.

He has worked alongside Tony Award winner Andy Blankenbuehler for Bandstand (Broadway/Paper Mill Playhouse) and created live work at La MaMa, HERE, Ars Nova, and Performance Space NY.

On TikTok, Brandon has grown a community of over 50,000 followers sharing his work and tips on becoming a creative professional. His videos have been recognized by BroadwayWorld and Playbill, with the latter naming him the “unofficial director” of the Ratatouille Musical phenomenon.

He is considered a leader at the intersection of performance and technology while co-founding live performance XR incubator, 5th Wall Forum, and serving as an associate producer at Musical Theatre Factory where he launched MTFxR, a program supporting radical XR musicals.

Brandon is a NEW INC member and has spoken at Creative Tech Week, the TCG National Conference, Verizon’s 5G Lab, Lincoln Center, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
