DEVON J. ADAMS is a dancer and choreographer devoted to performance that is exalted and intimate, to falling and being caught, to fitting large frames to ordinary breaths. She dances with Chaddick Dance Theater, and has performed nationwide with Ballet Repertory Theatre of New Mexico, the Angelo Dance Project, Blackbird Dance, and Sparrow Dance Productions. She's created original works for Ballet Reportory Theatre of New Mexico, The Austin City Ballet, and The Dance Project. She spends most of her time learning how to make imaginary things become real, on stages and cameras, in parks and in living rooms. She loves to create movement vocabulary which is completely dependent upon the world that contains it, real or imagined. Her greatest artistic pleasure lies in working collaboratively, combining mediums of performance art, and opening new doors through which to communicate.
