Corrie Befort is a ‘99 Cornish graduate, dancer, free-lance choreographer and designer/scenographer, and co-director of Seattle performance company Salt Horse, most recently commissioned by the Northwest Film Forum. Corrie is also a filmmaker, exploring physical and textural ideas in video for the past thirteen years. Her dance films have been screened in festivals in the USA, Japan, Europe, the Middle East and South America and her work as a video artist often appears within her live productions. She was commissioned by the Institute for Complex Adaptive Matter to choreograph and direct a flash mob illustrating superconductivity and Slip Cadence, a dance film about Alzheimer’s Disease which won an award in Portugal from the InShadow Festival and screened in the American Dance Festival. Other films include Sagamihara and Two Kinds of Wind, both shot in Japan, caught, wound, held, and Rota, shot on the sidewalk of Manhattan’s Broadway and awarded a Choreography Media Honor by Dance Camera West at the Directors Guild of America, Hollywood. Outside the dance film genre she has created several protocol videos for the UW Biochemistry labs the most recent of which was published by JoVE, an online, peer reviewed scientific video journal.  She currently teaches dance filmmaking at Cornish College, where she also advises and engages with the iET+I Labs, and through Velocity’s SYDC program which has partnered with Northwest Film Forum and ReelGrrls. Beyond Cornish she has studied through residency at the Rosas/P.A.R.T.S. school in Brussels and through a danceWEB scholarship in Vienna’s ImPulsTanz Festival. She has danced with Scott/Powell Performance, Sheri Cohen, and in Japan with Natsuko Tezuka. She recently returned from teaching, exploring and gathering footage in Spain, Portugal and Morocco.
