Juli Brandano is a dancer and choreographer based in Brooklyn, NY. She has collaborated as a performer with Phoebe Berlgund, Jessica Cook, Ayano Elson, Amelia Heintzelman and Cally Spooner, among others. She was a 2020 Lighthouse Works Fellow and was Dance Research Fellow at NYPL’s Jerome Robbins Dance Division.

Brooklyn-based choreographer Juli Brandano investigates the body as both material and dramatic subject in Some Other Material. A collaborative and research-based process, the work utilizes repetition, minimal music, and continual movement to forge a continuity between dancing bodies and the natural world. Initial inspiration was developed on Rockaway Beach, where the dancers studied and embodied the movement of tides and coastal erosion.
