Tammy Carrasco is based in Philadelphia and St. Petersburg, FL. She makes work of the body that requires presence and authorship from audiences. Carrasco opens space to her collaborators to bring all of themselves into the room, to bring the notion of fluidity and changeability into the language of their collaboration and work, and to embody the residue of the grey-areas of meaning that permeate out of their creative chemistry.
"Desert Picnic" debuted in 2020 at Houston Ballet's Frame x Frame Film Festival, and has been presented at Re:Emerge Dance Festival. "Desert Picnic" was made possible by funds from the NYState DanceForce supported by New York Council on the Arts, Pre-Tenure Grant programs and by the Dr. Nuala Affirmative Action/Diversity Drescher Leave Award from SUNY Brockport.
