Another dance honor for Seattle’s Zoe Scofield

Seattle modern-dance choreographer Zoe Scofield is among the winners of Special Project Awards from the Princess Grace Foundation-USA, a nonprofit founded by Prince Rainier III of Monaco that supports emerging artists. Special Project Awards vary in amount, according to the project budget submitted by the winners, and money is distributed at the beginning, halfway mark and completion of their projects. This is Scofield’s second award from the foundation; in 2011 she won (as did Seattle dancer/choreographer Olivier Wevers) the Princess Grace Award for choreography.

Scofield is one-half of the local dance company zoe | juniper, with visual artist Juniper Shuey. Locally, her work has been well-received at On the Boards, Spectrum Dance Theater, Velocity Dance Theater and the annual Northwest New Works Festival. Her work is also registering nationally — she’s premiered work at the Massachusetts dance mecca Jacob’s Pillow, has performed in New York, San Francisco and Minneapolis, and she’s turned up repeatedly in Dance Magazine. She’s definitely one to watch.
