Ashley R.T. Yergens
Ashley R.T. Yergens is a dance artist based in Brooklyn, NY. His choreographic work explores the assimilation of trans identities into American popular culture and what events led Time Magazine to mark 2014 as the ‘Transgender Tipping Point’. Visually, his performances unapologetically cross-contaminate references, aesthetics, and performative boundaries found in commercial and avant-garde dance, social media (YouTube and Instagram), stand-up comedy, and queer nightlife. As a performer, you can spot him as an extra in the FX docuseries A Wilderness of Error, dancing next to Carly Rae Jepsen and Dev Hynes in the “Better Than Me” music video, or go-go dancing at queer clubs throughout NYC.
