Alethea Pace is a Bronx-based choreographer and performer. Her first solo performance work, trying to sweep back the ocean with a broom, was created with support from Pepatian’s Open Call Residency and was performed at BAAD! (2016) and New York Live Arts (2017). Her second evening-length work, Bring Me Flowers, was developed with support from residencies including New York Live Arts’ Fresh Tracks, Dancing While Black, 92Y Harkness Dance and premiered at Pregones Theater in 2018.

She is currently working on Here goes the neighborhood… , a multimedia performance installation that reminds us of the wealth of knowledge we have in our bodies, memories and geographies, and empowers us to dream of radical visions for our future.

As a dancer, Alethea has performed with a variety of choreographers and was a member of Arthur Aviles Typical Theatre for eight years. She has been a collaborator in numerous multimedia community-centered arts projects including Angela’s Pulse and the Laundromat Project.

Alethea trained at Mind-Builders Creative Arts Center in the Bronx. She has a BA in Urban Design from NYU where she completed her thesis project on the history of Bronx housing. She is currently expanding her artistic practice as an MFA candidate at the City College of New York’s Digital and Interdisciplinary Arts Practice program. She was awarded the BRIO award and CUNY Dance Initiative in 2019 and was BAAD!’s Muse Artist in Residence in 2020. Read more at aletheapace.com or follow her on instagram @alethea_pace
