Myssi Robinson is a performer and educator active within both movement and visual practices. Following her graduation from Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, she spent three years as a teacher, administrator, and company member for Nimbus Dance Works. In that time, she began developing an ever expanding interest in visual art. These methods of creative expression have become the anchor of her artistic identity and a prerequisite for her private peace. Today, Myssi works to balance her visual practice with a freelance dance career (Kyle Marshall Choreography, Quentin Burley Dance Group, Elizabeth Dishman and Company, Drigg Productions, Baye and Asa, the School of Nimbus Dance Works, Washington Rock Dance School). She has presented her artwork at Crushed Muffins IV and at the inaugural BUMP through Harlem event. Myssi's fresh and dynamic approach to visual art captures ARTery's appeal for collaboration between different art forms related to dance. Though she is new to the scene, she is not to be missed or underestimated.
"I am establishing practices to uniquely record the passage of the world's movement through my own existence. From visual, auditory, and kinesthetic stimuli, abstract multi-media responses unfold. Rules and rhythms appear and disappear across the surface. Outside of the time-based social pressure of my life in performance, to work is to celebrate."
