Terre Unité Parker is an experimental dance artist who creates intergenerational performance for indoor and outdoor environments and participatory dance video installations. From 2003 - 2010, Parker was a member of postmodern dance pioneer Anna Halprin’s dance company and performed throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and abroad. Parker’s classes, participatory community events, written dance scores, performances, and dance videos serve to bring audiences and participants into close, intimate contact with the environment and provide a joyful experience of collective creativity. Parker’s collaborative work has recently been presented at the Midsummer Serenade Festival (Sequerciani, Tuscany, Italy 2012) and named a Finalist at Videoholica Festival (Varna, Bulgaria 2012). Parker has also taught and performed original work nationally and internationally in Bali, Java, Romania, and China.
