Zach Morris is Co-Artistic Director of Third Rail Projects, and a Bessie Award-winning choreographer whose work includes site-specific performances, installation art, video and multimedia projects, and immersive performance environments. He is particularly interested in creating projects that place contemporary art and performance in non-traditional contexts. Zach works to collide dream-like, archetypal images with highly personal realities of everyday life, creating juxtapositions that resonate on an intuitive level, and allow us access to more elusive ways of understanding ourselves and our world. Critics have described his work as “visually stunning,” “wickedly clever,” and “hauntingly melancholy.”  Zach has a BFA in Directing from Carnegie Mellon University.

Third Rail Projects, led by Artistic Directors Zach Morris, Tom Pearson, and Jennine Willett is dedicated to reframing dance and performance and bringing art to the public through an array of media and within a variety of contexts including site-specific performances, dance theater, installation art, media projects, and immersive performance environments. Their current show is the award-winning And Then She Fell, and House 17 is in development. Pictures: https://www.flickr.com/photos/13787007@N05/
