Bryan Campbell

Bryan Campbell is an American artist living in Paris. Since 2008, he has developed a body of multi-disciplinary work that mixes image, graphic design, text, and choreography to deal in the bodies and cognitions that are implicated in and created by visual culture. After studies at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, he took part in ex.e.r.ce, a research program under the direction of Mathilde Monnier at the Centre Chorégraphique National de Montpellier. While there, he initiated a period of research around the animated television series My Little Pony during which he created the conference/performance Research for the quadruped protagonist (2010), later presented at the Théâtre de la Cité Internationale (Paris), Beursschouwburg (Brussels), the Judson Church (New York), and elsewhere. Meanwhile, Campbell continued to perform with Loïc Touzé, Jana Unmüssig, and Emmanuelle Huynh. He received a research grant from the NRW Kultursekretariat (Wuppertal) in 2011, as well as the DanceWEB scholarship in 2013. In 2015, Bryan Campbell premiered MARVELOUS, a performance and magazine presented at PACT Zollverein (Essen), Working Title Festival in Kaaistudios (Brussels), Théâtre de Vanves (Paris – Île de France), and Actoral (Marseille). He has been an assistant for projects by Antonija Livingstone and Jacob Peter Kovner, and has recently danced in work by Olivia Grandville, DD Dorvillier, Jocelyn Cottencin, and Antonija Livingstone & Jennifer Lacey.
