MFA program co-director
Tavia La Follette earned her undergraduate (BFA) and PhD from Antioch, working closely under Amy Trompetter (Bread and Puppet Theatre), Denny Partridge and Steve Friedman (San Francisco Mime Troupe). Their influence of image, movement, social practice and politics are clear in her work. She was also a guinea pig for the new Performance Pedagogy program, at the University of Pittsburgh, where she earned her MFA.
Originally from Brooklyn, NY, Tavia is a director, curator, designer, deviser, performer and puppeteer. La Follette’s work has been seen in places like the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland, Arts at St. Ann’s, the Tenement Museum and the Mattress Factory Museum, always crossing over from the world of visual to performing to site-specific work. She is the founder/director of ArtUp, a non-profit which runs the Sites of Passage projects, global interchanges for the migration of ideas across political and cultural borders. She is the artist-in-residence at Carnegie Mellon University’s CREATE Lab and curator of the new COFAC Interdisciplinary Center at Towson University.
