mdonohue bio

I promised Andy I’d send a bio months ago and instead posted a bunch of APAP blog responses. Since I’m in the midst of prepping and touring to Hawaii (yessss), I’m not seeing anything for the next week and half and can take the moment to add some background. I’m a NYC choreographer, artistic director of Maura Nguyen Donohue/inmixedcompany, assistant professor of dance at Hunter College (please excuse the site, since coming on board in Sep. I’ve taken on revamping – but it’s not published yet) and member of the board for Dance Theater Workshop, where I also served as one of the first DTW/Digital Fellows and as artistic advisor for The Mekong Project, a multi-year exchange and residency program in the US and SE Asia. I wrote for The Dance Insider from the spring of 2000 – fall of 2009, serving as Asian Bureau Chief and senior artistic advisor and covering dance and live performance in NYC, HK, India, Japan and SE Asia.  I also wrote for Dance Magazine, American Theater Journal, NY State Danceforce, and the HK Dance Journal. I was guest editor for Critical Correspondence’s University Project, a series of interviews with dance faculty across the country. Academically, I write about intersections of race, gender, and technology in live movement-based performance and serve on the board of directors for the Congress on Research in Dance. I have both a BA in Anthropology and Dance (’92) and MFA in Choreography and Performance from Smith College where I’ve served as visiting guest artist and teaching fellow. I’ve also been on faculty at Hampshire and Mt. Holyoke Colleges. I have two children.
