Bio
Philip Elson is a dance artist engaging with various arenas of dance research and performance including live performance, dance for camera, education, and experimental collaboration.

His choreographic and directed work derives from a desire to explore the effects of life's experiences through their physical impacts. These experiences range from social, political, environmental, and personal matters.

Elson’s choreography has been showcased in Chicago as part of the Harvest Chicago Contemporary Dance Festival, PRODUCE presented by Art Intercepts, Dance for $9.99 presented by Chicago Moving Company, MIX with SIX presented by The Seldoms, The Open Space Project, Poonie's Cabaret, The A.W.A.R.D.

Elson’s collaborative roles with dance involve sound and video design, web design, video documentation and editing, curation, and arts administration. He has served as curator for Red Tape Theatre, the Student/Alumni Stage for 1306: Ten Years Later at The Dance Center of Columbia College, and Dive - a festival event presented by The Open Space Project.
