“Townsend’s combination of wit and suppleness made her a delight to watch.”

Ann Murphy, Dance View Times

 Lisa Townsend - Garage

“As a choreographer, I look for moments of resonance between bodies, the expression of ideas through gesture and intimate touch, testing the limits of trust. In collaboration with visual and theatrical artists, writers and composers, I am committed to creating innovative, timely and meaningful work.”
