Independent choreographer Janet Schmid has been called “an outsider artist with a naive sophistication,” “refreshingly off the map,” and “simultaneously intense and ludicrous.” She has presented her pedestrian choreography and installation based performances at the Museum of Contemporary Art, the Elastic Arts Foundation, the Spareroom, Happy Dog Gallery, Links Hall, Defibrillator Gallery, and the Chicago Cultural Center as well as in park district buildings, vacant lots, nightclubs, apartments, parked cars, and loft spaces throughout Chicago. Janet has received a Links Hall LinkUP performing artist’s residency and a Chicago Cultural Center DanceBridge choreographer’s residency. She has performed in the community casts of Meredith Monk’s Mercy, White Oak Dance Project’s Past Forward, Liz Lerman’s The Matter of Origins and Katsura Kan’s Curious Fish. She has performed for local choreographers Smith/Wymore Disappearing Acts, Ayako Kato, Asimina Chremos, 3 Card Molly, Jessica Hannah, Julie Rae Antonic and Matthew Hollis. Film credits include appearing in Daniele Wilmouth’s Super 16mm dance film, Fanfare for Marching Band, choreographed by Peter Carpenter, and zombie movement development for John Cusack’s film adaptation of Stephen King’s Cell.
