Robert Woofter (Bambi Warhol) is a control freak, sporadic drag queen, and MFA graduate from the University of Michigan. His work has been presented in New York City at the wild project, Movement Research at Judson Church, Dixon Place, and Triskelion Arts, and he was named one of Dance Magazine's "Best of 2012" for his work "Six Movements to the Music of Nicki Minaj." Robert is interested in the juxtapositions of the gaudy and subdued, the crude and refined, and the classical and contemporary as he lives by the motto “extravagance is a virtue.”

Before earning a BA in Dance from The New School in 2012, he studied at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, Ballet Austin, The Rock School, The Boston Conservatory, Hubbard Street Dance, and The School at Jacob's Pillow. Since then, Robert performed professionally in New York with Ishmael Houston-Jones, Christopher Williams, Austin McCormick’s Company XIV (as an originating member in the New York Times critic’s pick Baroque Burlesque), and Gillian Walsh (as performer/collaborator in the Bessie Award nominated Grinding and Equations).

Robert currently teaches at Joy of Motion Dance Center and is a member of PrioreDance in Washington, DC. 

 

COLLABORATORS

 

Shay Bares (costume designer for Ave Bambi / #hausofbambi the last rites) is a New York based dancer and costume designer. Originally from Texas, she moved to New York to pursue a career in dance and soon discovered the costumes she was having to dance in weren't up to par. She took it upon herself to learn to sew and consequently fix this travesty. Presently, Shay has had the pleasure of dancing and costuming multiple dance works both in America and internationally including Bad Boys of Dance, MadBoots, and The People Movers.

Spencer Haney (composer for Nasty Black Orchids) is an emotional dilettante, expressing themselves through dance, music, sculpture and memes. Spencer is currently a University of Michigan student with a lot to learn.
