Marta Renzi has been making dances professionally since 1976. A seven-time recipient of NEA Choreographic Fellowships, her work has also been funded by the Jerome Foundation, and the Trust for Mutual Understanding, among others. In 1992, Marta received a New York Dance & Performance Award (a "Bessie") for her dance VITAL SIGNS, and in 1995 was the first recipient of a Dancing in the Streets award as "a fearless explorer of all manner of unconventional sites, integrating art into everyday life." Her site-specific choreography has led naturally to work in video and film. In 1981, she made YOU LITTLE WILD HEART, a half-hour video dance for PBS, followed in 1989 by a second for television entitled MOUNTAINVIEW, made in collaboration with filmmaker John Sayles. Since 2005, she has self-produced several short films which have been screened nationally and internationally.
