Reese Johanson


I am committed to creating innovative and collaborative works of performance. My work is largely physical theater and dance with live music. I enjoy working with multidisciplinary artists, incorporating different performance genres into my productions. The subject of my work is very human. There are really only two things that drive us: 1. sex and 2. death. I grapple with day to day reality of "how do we procreate?" and "how do we avoid death?" by breaking it down to variations of these life objectives, sub topics. I explore desires and obstacles such as love, survival, integration, destiny, intimacy...Inspiration is endless. It comes from my presence in life.
