Shandoah Goldman holds a M.A from London Contemporary Dance School as well as a B.A from Bennington College. Currently based in Brooklyn, Shandoah has worked and traveled internationally as an artist engaged in interdisciplinary and cross-cultural collaboration. She builds work for both urban and rural landscapes, using nontraditional venues as her stage. She creates experiences where the boundaries between audience, performers and performance space are blurred, from gathering forty dancers on the Broadway sidewalk in front of New York City’s Flatiron building to a rooftop performance for an audience of one. She is also the founder of Artsy Yenta, a platform for artists of all disciplines to find collaborators.
During her residency at Pioneer Works, Shandoah will create a large-scale, site-specific work, Ferrum, which draws on the historical, industrial components of the Pioneer Works space. This project will premier on May 10th during Pioneer Works’ open studios event, Second Sundays.
