Collaborating Artists

Avant Media’s mission is to support the production and performance of collaborative artistic projects and promote a method of parallel collaboration that engages all members of the creative team from concept through realization. Collaborators currently involved in Avant Media include:

Ana Baer-Carrillo
choreographer and videographer

“I craft dance and video with the purpose of expressing the inner condition of underrepresented communities. My philosophy is to provide a habitat for experimentation, creation and reflection.”

Dani Beauchamp
choreographer

“My mission as a choreographer is to exhaust the exploration of identity. My fascination lies in the dissection of the relationships of self and psyche and self and society. Who are we? What are we? Why are we what we are? Who are we in society? Using a highly physical vocabulary to relay a movement narrative, my dances are about the human experience, its complexity and subtleties, its splendor and futility.”

Mike Rugnetta
composer and programmer

“My work makes use of the audience’s wholly modern skill of being able to deal with massive amounts of simultaneous information. Staged as something resembling a lecture, these pieces include text, music and a strong visual element. The subject area is broad, seeking to uncover the greatest number of connections between people and ideas in the smallest amount of time.”
