Jody Oberfelder Projects
Jody Oberfelder is a director, choreographer, and filmmaker. She creates art which aims to illuminate life. Whether stage, film, site or installation, her works expand how one experiences dance. Her works often provide audiences with experiences of intimate engagement whether in a vast space or guiding journeys through theatrical environs, historical habitats, bridges, train stations, or ordinary places. Rube G. is a film created during the pandemic in the summer of 2020. Oberfelder assembled contributions from over 100 dancers and movers.
Oberfelder is currently developing a series of site inspired pieces called Walking to Present (London) which was performed in April at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and in June, a commission from the Brooklyn Public Library Walking to Present (Brooklyn) performed the Center for Brooklyn History and walking into Cadman Plaza. She had been invited to DANCE Munich Festival May 2023 to premiere Walking to Present (Munich) : in addition to an eight-person version of Life Traveler. The commissions are postponed to their next biennial festival in 2023.

Born in Reston, Virginia, Alexander Sargent is a multidisciplinary artist and Juilliard Dance alumnus. He has performed and taught internationally, and his films have won awards and festival placements around the globe. Based in New York City, he deeply cherishes the opportunity to work with individuals across a variety of mediums in order to engage in a unique artistic dialogue that is intimately tailored to the moment and the message. As an artist he continuously integrates his aptitudes in acting, digital media, music composition, and movement to create work that is genuine to the cause. He ultimately seeks to enable audiences and artists alike to self-actualize their inner-narrative through exploration, honesty, and inclusivity; working from the core belief that the arts are a keystone of a holistic human experience.
