Lily Conforti is a dance artist from the twin cities, graduating in May 2021 from the University of Minnesota with degrees in dance and physiology. Lily’s choreography has been performed in the University of Minnesota's BLUEPRINT and eARThing shows, FUTURE INTERSTATES curated by HIJACK, ArtBox's annual show INBOX@ARTBOX, and the FRINGE FESTIVAL. She has performed works choreographed by Carl Flink, Kjara Wurst, Andrea Miller, and other local dance artists.
Choreographer and Dancer in LCcreations
As a double major in dance and physiology, the work that she has done thus far has led her to a creative process that is guided by an ecological lens. Body functions, scientific processes, and ecological relationships are common motifs scattered throughout her work. Lily’s most recent choreographed work was a show for the Minnesota fringe festival titled Botanical Dancing. Dancers took paint and markers to canvas drop cloths on the floor, dancing out patterns similar to how bees communicate in a hive, which served as the inspiration for this show. Dancers created lasting visuals and fleeting shapes on stage through the mediums of visual art and dance. Lily’s work strives to combine varying artistic mediums in order to cultivate an art experience that is new to the audience.
