The Stretch celebrates movers and makers.
Featuring long-form candid conversations with the dance professionals, The Stretch aims to inspire new creators and invigorate a connected performance community.
Emeri Fetzer is a Utah native turned New York based performer and dance media enthusiast. The Stretch NY acts as a public forum extending the often transcendent and passion-fueled private everyday conversations Emeri has with colleagues and friends in the dance community. Emeri graduated in Dance and English from Goucher College in Baltimore. While studying abroad at Accademia dell’Arte in Italy, Emeri cultivated a passion for narrative performance that led to 2 years of performing multiple roles in Punchdrunk’s Sleep No More NYC. While in New York, she has also performed in full-evening original work produced by GreenSpace in LIC and at WestFest at WestBeth, and in collaborative solos with choreographer Grace Courvoisier at CPR and as part of the CRAWL Series. As Managing Editor for DancePulp.com in collaboration with Drew Jacoby, Emeri stayed connected to the dance community through an editorial perspective, interviewing many artists on process and preference. Currently, Emeri performs with Phantom Limb Company and Company SBB.
