Kristin Marting is a director of hybrid work based in NYC and Co-Founder and Artistic Director of HERE.
She has constructed 26 works for the stage (11 original works, 8 adaptations of novels and 7 classic plays) and is currently developing IDIOT, a work for 4 actors and video from the Dostoevsky novel. Other recent projects include interactive works Trade Practices and Lush Valley, James Scruggs’s solo eight channel video work Disposable Men and his recent hybrid play (Rus)h. She also directed Sounding and Dead Tech (collaborative works adapted from Ibsen), both of which received prestigious MAP Fund awards. Her work has been supported by the NEA, NYSCA, DCA, Aeroflex Foundation, Axe-Houghton Foundation, Greenwall Foundation, Harkness Foundation for Dance, Jerome Foundation, Rockefeller Foundation Multi Arts Program and Peg Santvoord Foundation; reviews have appeared in all major New York media. Prior works have toured around the US. She has also collaborated on several large-scale political action art events, including The Line in 2004.
For the last 20 years, she has been developing a unique hybrid directorial/choreographic form that features a “gestural vocabulary” used both as an emotional signifier and as a choreographic element. This vocabulary, though specific to each project, is in a state of constant development with an ever-growing set of permanent gestures being added to the repertoire.
She teaches Creative Producing at New School and lectures at Bard, Brown, Columbia, Harvard, NYU, and Williams College among others. She regularly serves on grant panels for NEA, NYSCA, DCA and TCG, among others. Previously, Marting co-founded and served as co-artistic director of Tiny Mythic Theatre Company for nine years. She served as Robert Wilson’s assistant for Hamletmachine and Salome. She graduated from NYU with honors in 1988.
