Zwoisy Mears-Clarke

Zwoisy Mears-Clarke (JA) is a choreographer of the encounter. Zwoisy uses the expanding potential of choreography to confront mechanisms of oppression, including ableism, black-&white-ness, neo-colonialism, and sexism, that sabotage human interaction both systematically and interpersonally. Through dance, or rather collective movement, Zwoisy desires to open encounters that might otherwise seem unreachable, creating opportunities to move differently with one another. Zwoisy's development as an artist has been guided largely by Mary Cochran, Anna Mülter, Paula Chaves Bonilla, Joy Mariama Smith, Gabi Beier, and various Black feminist community leaders.
