Mitsu Salmon creates performance and visual works that fuse multiple disciplines. She was born in Los Angeles to a Japanese mother and American father. Creating in differing mediums—translating one medium
to another—is connected to the translation of differing cultures and languages. Her work draws from Butoh, contemporary dance, voice and performance art.
She currently lives in Chicago and is headed to a residency at Taipei Artist Village. She used to live in Kyoto from 2008-11 where she collaborated with Ryotaro Sudo and worked with Ima Tenko. She is excited to be back and working again with Ryotaro.
Salmon received her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2014 and her undergrad degree from NYU. She was awarded best collaborative multi-disciplinary performance and top 5 emerging dancers in Chicago by Newcity in 2015 and a touring grant through Midwest Nexus in 2018. She has performed work in Chicago, NYC, LA, London, France, Germany, Indonesia, and Taiwan.
