Sharleen Chidiac is a Brooklyn-based artist working in performance, choreography, film, and music. Influenced by Butoh and Gaga movement practices, Sharleen's choreographic style is distinctive for its intuitive understanding of the sensation and pleasure found through the moving body. Based on her studies in dance/movement therapy, Sharleen's research aims to develop a kinethestic awareness that can be used as a tool for healing the mind and body. She is interested in the function and expression of the body in everyday movement, how one's habitual movement behavior can transform through performance.
As Otion Front's October Artist-in-Residence, Sharleen's new solo work titled 'Metonymy of a Fragmented Self' explores the disappearance and memory of the self in performance. This performance is an interpretation of research ranging from Western philosophy to confessional performance art.
