Adam H Weinert is a performance-based artist born and raised in New York City. He began his training at The School of American Ballet, and continued to Vassar College, The Juilliard School, and New York University where he is currently pursuing a Master’s Degree under the tutelage of Andre Lepecki. Adam has danced with The Metropolitan Opera Ballet Company, The Mark Morris Dance Group, Shen Wei Dance Arts, and Christopher Williams, and for four years served as the Artistic Associate to Jonah Bokaer.
In 2008, Adam formed In Situ Arts, a non-profit organization with a mission to develop, nurture, and support works of contemporary performance that challenge preconceived frameworks for interpreting and experiencing art. In Situ Arts is interested in the possibilities that emerge when an embrace of digital technology joins with an attention to specific location. The phrase in situ come from Latin, and translates loosely to mean “in position.” We took this as our name because it describes the kind of creative expression we wish to explore: work that is site-specific, audience-specific and temporally-specific. Advances in digital technology have changed the way that art, both visual and performance-based, is located, experienced, and documented. In Situ Arts proposes to think about these possibilities not only in terms of dissemination on the internet, but also of alternative approaches to presenting work in communities and spaces outside of the naturally-evolved homes of performance.
In addition to his performance work, Adam has been published in the New York Times, the Juilliard Journal, and as a featured proﬁle in New York Magazine. Weinert is the producer and choreographer of an award-winning collection of dance ﬁlm shorts screened nationally and abroad, and his creations for stage have toured to four continents including a number of non-traditional dance venues such as the Museum of Modern Art, The Tate Britain Museum, and The Tate Modern Museum. He was awarded Presidential Distinction and Scholastic Distinction from the Juilliard School and in 2008 received the Hector Zaraspe Prize for Outstanding Choreography. Adam has received support from The Mertz-Gilmore Foundation, the Harkness Foundation, and was a presenter at the 2011 Digital Futures in Dance Conference in Bournemouth, UK. Adam is thrilled to join the faculty of Barnard College in the fall of 2014 teaching Site Specific Choreography and Experimental Methods.
Since 2006 Adam has been an active member of the arts scene in Brooklyn primarily through close collaborations with Jonah Boaker/Chez Bushwick. Additionally he has worked on the cultivation of new venues for dance and performance in Bushwick, DUMBO and Fort Greene. He currently lives in Williamsburg.
