Bridging the worlds of contemporary avant-garde performance and classical kathak, Cynthia Lee's choreography focuses on rigorous intercultural collaboration and developing kathak as a contemporary form. Simone Forti's text-movement improvisation, the work of Eiko & Koma, and contact improvisation deeply inform Cynthia's approach to contemporary dance; her style of kathak reflects studies with Bandana Sen, Kumudini Lakhia, and Anjani Ambegaokar. Cynthia collaborates with artists from diverse backgrounds, including visual artist YaYa Chou, new music/jazz composer David Cutler, and West Sumatran choreographer Ery Mefri. The recipient of a 2002-3 Thomas J. Watson Fellowship, Cynthia was also invited to participate in the 2006 Asia Pacific Performing Arts Exchange, the 2007 Asian Young Choreographers Project in Taiwan, and the 2008 Indonesian Dance Festival. Her choreography has been shown throughout India, Indonesia, Taiwan, and the United States. She has performed internationally at venues ranging from UCLA Royce Hall, the Skirball Cultural Center, the Philadelphia Fringe Festival, Taipei National University of the Arts, Taman Ismail Marzuki, India International Centre, and Chandralekha's SPACES. Cynthia holds an MFA in choreography from UCLA's Department of World Arts and Cultures and is a member of the Post Natyam Collective, dedicated to critical and creative approaches to South Asian dance.
