Leslie Bush is a Philadelphia based performance artist and educator whose work describes ephemeral interactions of humans, technology, and nature within a chaotic landscape. She employs several mediums- including improvisational movement, innovative technologies, and video installation- to encourage a re-imagining of concepts such as control, dis/organization, and autonomy. Ms. Bush has created work as an independent artist, and as part of Ruba/Bush Dance, an ongoing collaborative project with fellow mover Muyu Y. Ruba. After receiving a Master of Fine Arts in dance from Temple University in 2017, Leslie began teaching dance and organizing community arts programs in and around the Philadelphia area. She currently teaches at Rowan University in Glassboro New Jersey as an adjunct professor, and as a guest teaching artist at Taller Puertorriqueno.
