    Soapbox is a Creative Movement workshop series, using workshop-to-performance model to create a platform for moving, listening and dialogue. Coco Karol biography: When she couldn't fit her self into a cello, dancer and choreographer Coco Karol chose instead an upright base...and then a Thai drum...and then she squeezed into the nook of a flute player's elbow mid- C sharp...and currently, she wrestles with a Theramin in her spare time. Since graduating with a BFA from Tisch School of the Arts, Coco Karol has been making dance and performing in New York for over a decade. Coco started her professional career with The Boston Ballet and found her artistic voice with Marcus Schulkind. She is an existing member of Misnomer Dance Theater and has danced for Cherylyn Lavagnino Company and Christopher Williams, and done projects with Christy O'Harris and Bill Young, Chloe Douglas, Jose Navas, Steven Petronio, and Wanda Gala. She has worked closely along side musicians such as Bjork, Ryan Lott (Son Lux), Koh Ohtera, Daniel Carter, and Ear to Mind collective; and artists such as photographer Steven Sebring, sculptor Eve Bailey, architect Marcos Zotes and designer Louda Larrain. Her work has been shown internationally as well as across New York at Symphony Space, BAX, Ibeam, Spectrum, D.U.M.B.O Under the Bridge Arts Festival, New York Studio Gallery, Galapagos, Brooklyn Ballet, Death By Audio, in the AUNTS collective's shifting venues, as well as at some unique community events for neighborhood youth and gardening, including The Petri Space, a live work performance venue Karol built and ran in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Recently, Karol has begun exploring dance for camera and started Red Sole Productions, a small production company for dance-based media. She has also been developing workshop-to-performance models that cultivate embodied listening and moving, so as to create a platform for dialogue and to facilitate a space for discovery amongst artists or populations seeking social movement. www.findingcoco.net Azmi Mert Erdem biography: Azmi Mert Erdem is a Turkish multidisciplinary artist, interweaving video, photography, performance, painting and installation in his work.
