About the Dancers

Together, Taryn Griggs and Chris Yon create original dance works that are deadpan slapstick, understated melodrama, autobiographical science fiction, cubist vaudeville, asymmetrically consonant explorations of magic and virtuosity in everyday movement. They met at the Bessie Schönberg Artist Residency at The Yard in 2002 and have been working together ever since. They were participants in the dance communities of New York City, Minneapolis, and Iowa City, before moving to Winston-Salem. They are currently working on a series of performances at SECCA inhabiting the galleries in between exhibitions. Chris and Taryn's choreographies have been presented across the US, Canada, Ireland, and France.
