Elby Brosch began dancing at age 10 when his mom signed him up for take ballet class. Dance quickly became a safe haven, a way to connect to a body that felt hard to understand. As gender became confusing, movement became clear. He gained control and intimacy with his body, and learned to process emotion and trauma through movement. Dance has become a vital part of his existence. Now, he choreographs to build connections and understandings from a marginalized view point to greater community. He distills the trans experience down to what makes us human and offers that to his audiences. He presented his work at On The Boards in Northwest New Works, at Velocity in a co-produced show, This That & The Other, and in Velocity produced shows, Fall Kick Off, and Next Fest Northwest. Seattle International Dance Festival and Mo-Wave also presented his work.
