Emily Loar is a movement artist in Chicago. She received a BFA in dancemaking from Columbia College Chicago in 2014, focusing on the intersection of experimental dance and spoken word. Since graduating Loar has performed as both a solo artist and under the umbrella of multiple Chicago-based dancemakers, including Peter Carpenter, Lydia Feuerhelm, Kasey Foster, Jonathan Meyer, and Julia Rae Antonick. A founding member of Project Bound, Loar took over as Co-Artistic Director in 2018, and is debuting her first choreographic collaboration, “Notified,” under this new role.
