Bryan Markovitz is an artist and scholar working to help interdisciplinary groups compose experiences in more enacted, public and expressive ways. He is formally trained in theatre and the fine arts, with a professional background in directing, visual art, writing, research, design and communication. He holds an MFA in Performance and Studio Art from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and a BA in Theatre from Trinity University.
Bryan’s research interests include theatre and performance in modernity, theatricality in the production of knowledge and commerce, and the relationship of performance to other empirical disciplines. He is also interested in enacted forms of design practice, the role of theatre in diplomacy, and performance activities that contribute to the direct composition of politics, technology and the sciences.
Bryan is based in New York City, and works as a strategist and project lead with ESI Design. In 1997, he co-founded Liminal, a Portland, Oregon based performance ensemble that creates live events through research, rigorous physical technique, and networked environments.
