Zoe Scofield

Zoe Scofield

Zoe Scofield is a Seattle based choreographer who shows an extensive background in the dance world. Her education in dance has led her to study in many institutions. Zoe studied ballet as a scholarship student at Walnut Hill School for the Performing Arts in Boston. She later concentrated on Ashtanga Yoga while in Toronto with another dance company. Her background has contributed to her signature modern dance choreography. Zoe has received scholarships and commissioned with such collaborators like The Frye Art Museum and On The Boards.

Collaboration and Other Works

Since Zoe's move to Seattle she has been performing with other choreographers and showcased her work at On The Boards, Spectrum Dance Theater, Velocity Dance Center, and the 2005 Northwest New Works Festival where she began her recent collaboration with video artist Juniper Shuey and musician Morgan Henderson for their piece "There ain't no easy way out". On The Boards has since commissioned Zoe, Juniper, and Morgan's piece for their 2006 Northwest Artist Series. Later an adaptation of the piece, "Find your own way out", was made for touring and has since been performed at Jacob's Pillow Inside/Out stage, Bumbershoot Festival (Seattle), and Smoke Farm Secret of Gold Festival (Seattle). They will also perform at The Southern Theater (Minneapolis), ODC Theater (San Francisco), and Velocity Dance Theater (Seattle). Zoe has also been commissioned by The Frye Art Museum and Spectrum Dance Theater for other projects. The Frye Art Museum has given Zoe and other collaborators commissions for their Franz Stuck "Sin" exhibit in April 2007, and Spectrum Dance Theater for their Studio Series in 2007. Zoe also choreographs in NDP's Pacific Lab Dance and has curated 12 Minutes Max and the Secret of Gold Festival.
