Allison Costa (she/they) is a New York City based multi-media artist whose practice is primarily focused at the intersection of dance and technology.  She enjoys working collaboratively and across forms to create unique pieces in the liminal space where creative conception, narrative heart, and multi-disciplinary practice come together. Fascinated with finding ways to visualize the intangible, she actively explores the possibilities of human-computer interaction. How can technology expand our understanding of human movement to reveal what its ephemerality makes indiscernible to the eye? And conversely, how can dance and art expand our understanding of data to reveal how this immaterial information “stored” in computers is not neutral, as typically believed, but imbued with memory and history?  Allie hopes to unite the two universal languages of dance and technology to engage a larger audience and breakdown the gap between these two symbiotic fields.

Allison studied Dance and Computer Science at Barnard College of Columbia University and has been working at the Barnard College Movement Lab as Post-Baccalaureate Fellow since graduating in 2019. She also studied at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne Australia and participated in University of South Florida’s Dance in Paris Program. While working at the Movement Lab, Allie has had the opportunity to collaborate with a number of artists including LaJuné McMillian, Kenji Williams, Cari Ann Shim Sham, Mimi Yin, Chisa Hidaka, and Norah Zuniga Shaw.
