Emily Johnson

Founders Hall

Emily Johnson is an artist, writer and dancer who makes body-based work. Originally from Alaska, she is now based in Minneapolis. She creates work that considers the experience of sensing and seeing performance. Her dances function as installations, engaging audiences within and through a space and environment - interacting with a place’s architecture, history, and role in community. She learned sewing with fish-skin from Audrey Armstrong, has led fish-skin sewing workshops for two years, and made 50 fish-skin lanterns for her dance, Niicugni. Emily is of Yup'ik descent.
