Erick Montes/Danceable Projects

About the Artist

Danceable Projects is an interdisciplinary artistic initiative to further peer-to-peer support, creative feedback, networking, and the presentation of their work.

The platform gives agency to performance artists and choreographers interested in collaboration as an anti-supremacy strategy to disrupt traditional dance and art spaces emerging from the community. I collaborate with organizations to create space for dance performance installations featuring independent artistic voices that bring authentic, compelling, and exciting ideas through research, whatever state their investigations find at. I believe movement is the threshold to ancestral wisdom manifested through ideas, physicality, or art.

My latest installation, “Moving Landscapes,” was presented at Montpellier’s National Centre of
Choreography and Dance in France as part of my research residency with the University of the Arts. In the spring of 2022, I partnered with Triskelion Arts in Brooklyn to curate the research-as-action performance program by distinguished artists Arantxa Araujo, Mirian Parker, and choreographer Geraldine Cardiel.

I have also partnered with Jane St. Art Center to present the film installation project “Mexendo
Horizontes,” created in collaboration with photographer Bernardo Gasparini, to regenerate public spaces in the Village of Saugerties, NY. Other collaborations include works by Twin Shadow, Daniel Zero Waste, Connor Sale, and Guillermo Brown.

My work has been recognized and supported by esteemed institutions and organizations,
including the Fund for New Work at Harlem Stage, The National Endowment for the Arts in México, and The New York Foundation for the Arts. I hold an MFA in Dance from The University of the Arts and a BA from The National School of Contemporary Dance in Mexico City. I am a former Bill.T Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company member and hold a Dance Fellowship & Life Experience Award for the University of the Arts.
