lay of this land, created and performed by Meg Foley, warbles, wrestles, falls, declares, and re-orients around the present moment, testing the tension between affect and effect, chance and construct, and you and me in this present moment.

Meg Foley is a Philadelphia-based performer, choreographer, and director of moving parts. Her work has been presented in performance and visual art venues in Philadelphia, NYC, Los Angeles, Canada, and Poland. An improviser and a queer person, Foley is interested in the embodied potential for a more pliable sense of self and of relationship. Foley’s creative work extends to performance work with Susan Rethorst, interdisciplinary collaborations with multi-disciplinary artist Catherine Pancake and composer Bhob Rainey, and curation of performance and research platforms (Dance it Out at AUX Performance Space, workshops with visiting artists at The Whole Shebang, both in Philadelphia, amongst others.) Foley is a 2012 Pew Fellow in the Arts. She teaches at University of the Arts.
