Audrey Thao Berger
Arts Administrator. Teaching Artist
Born and raised in San Francisco, California, Audrey is a New York based choreographer, dance artist, and arts administrator. She is captivated by the ways memory, ancestral histories, and how we are socialized in the world are stored as information in the body. Her movement practice explores how witnessing, moving through, and transforming these different embodied experiences can facilitate individual and collective healing. Audrey feels she speaks most truthfully through movement.
Audrey has performed at venues such as Arts on Site, Triskellion, and The Place Theater. Her choreographic commissions include new work for the 2022 United States of Asian America Festival and the Ruth Asawa School of the Art’s Dance Department. Audrey was a recipient of the A4 What Can We Do? Micro-Grant, a 2022 Artist in Residence at Motive Brooklyn, and a member of the 2022 Dance NYC Junior Committee and 2022 Moving Towards Justice program at Gibney.
At present, Audrey is a 2022/23 Performance Project Fellow with the University Settlement. When not in the studio, she works in Company Management at Sleep No More and as the Programs and Production Associate at The Brooklyn Arts Exchange. Additionally, she is a creative movement teacher in New York public schools and has taught Pre-K and Kindergarten classes at PS 12, PS 107, and PS 242. Audrey holds a BA in dance from the London Contemporary Dance School.
