”As a visual artist and choreographer, Juniper and Zoe are drawn together as collaborators by our respect for and subverted use of classical form, aesthetic clarity and the desire to create a sense of heightened reality.” (from www.zoeand juniper.com)
Dancer/choreographer Zoe Scofield and visual artist Juniper Shuey have been collaborating since 2004 and are based in Seattle. Zoe is a choreographer and dancer, trained in classical ballet. Her work involves distorting and deconstructing the classical ballet technique she trained in and then reassembling it through her investigation of the skeletal structure of form.
Juniper Shuey is a visual artist who creates, through his manipulation of the emotional and visual elements of design, spaces for Zoe to dance in (and for an audience to experience) that are an exaggerated reality; visually rich and engaging.
