About Joanna Haigood
Joanna Haigood, Artistic Director, relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area from New York in 1980 and co-founded Zaccho Dance Theatre. Her creative work uses natural, architectural and cultural environments as a point of departure for movement exploration and narrative. Her works involve in-depth research into the history and the character of sites and often integrate aerial flight and suspension as a way of expanding dancers' spatial and dynamic range. Haigood has taught at the National Ecole des Arts du Cirque in France, the Laban Centre in England.
