    Bio


    MICHIYAYA DANCE is an all-women contemporary dance theater company based in New York City. Co-Founded in Fall 2015 by Anya Clarke and Mitsuko Verdery, MICHIYAYA DANCE merges the worlds of Clarke and Verdery’s backgrounds in Dance and Visual Art. Clarke, who has a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Long Island University, calls on her experience in choreography, adding visceral and intuitive movement. Verdery, who has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Carnegie Melon University, taps into her practice in Performance and Visual art, adding conceptually driven performative elements. Together, they produce collaborative and improvisation-based work with their dance artists. MICHIYAYA DANCE was awarded the 2016 First Prize for “Choreographic excellence” at 11th Annual International Reverdance Festival. They were awarded the 2017 Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant and Pittsburgh Opportunity Fund Grant. MICHIYAYA DANCE was featured in one of the newest collection of Thinx, women’s period-proof underwear line. They have performed at venues such as Yale University, Brooklyn Museum, Dumbo Dance Festival, Dixon Place, Manhattan Movement & Arts Center, among others. Clarke and Verdery have taught master classes and workshops at Early Mosley’s Institute of the Arts, Gibney Dance Center, Dancing Grounds, Spaceworks and more. They were guest choreographers for Liu’s Dance Department in 2016.
