The Department of Theater and Dance is excited to host an artist talk with Scotty Hardwig! He is an experimental movement artist, performer and teacher originally from southwest Virginia. His research practice stems from the confluence of sensory media and the moving body, creating movement-based artwork through live performance, installation/site-specific, and cinematic frames. He received his MFA in Dance from the University of Utah, and has served on the faculty at the University of Utah and Middlebury College, and is currently an assistant professor in movement, performance and integrated media at Virginia Tech, where he is experimenting and creating choreographic and cinematic works at the intersection of technology and the body.
