Benjamin Ford Asriel grew up in Glasgow, Kentucky where he cultivated his love of art in his mother's dance classes, on the soccer field, and playing trumpet in the GHS Band. He studied music theory at Brown University (AB Music '03) and dance at NYU Tisch School of the Arts (MFA '06). He lives in Brooklyn and is grateful to have performed extensively with many amazing regional choreographers, most recently Walter Dundervill, Juliana F. May, Edisa Weeks, Susan Rethorst, and Jack Ferver. Ben also makes dances; his new work, Utility Pet, will premier at CPR June 23-25. Tell him what you think: firstname.lastname@example.org.
