Eileen Standley is an interdisciplinary artist working with visual arts practices, dance and choreography. She presents her work in performance, exhibition or installation settings in both traditional and non-traditional venues. Her artistic research often explores a threshold moment before gesture manifests itself in the world of form – a meeting of the ephemeral and the material in transient time/space constructs. Recent collaborative projects have been inspired by inquiry into aging, dance and legacy through a somatic lens. Consciousness, the metaphysical, and radically shifting states of body/mind are also recurring themes of inquiry in her work. Informed by practices of real-time composition/improvisation, live art, somatically-driven investigations and collaboration, her work has been shown regionally, nationally and internationally.

Eileen is dedicated to education and has taught in the area of dance and interdisciplinary arts over the last 30 years within universities, international festivals, academies, and schools of dance, art, and movement. After many years of living and working in Europe, Standley relocated back to the U.S. where she now holds a position as Clinical Professor within the School of Film, Dance and Theatre at Arizona State University.

Standley’s work has been commissioned and supported by various international arts institutions, festivals, and funding bodies, such as Fonds vd Podiumkunst, Mama Cash, and Anjer Fonds (in the Netherlands), Centre Dramatic D’Osona (Spain), Full Moon Festival and Zodiak Presents (Finland), Contemporary Dance Assn. of Japan, The Japan Foundation, the Institute for Humanities Research, and the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University.
