Leslie Cuyjet is a performer and choreographer in Brooklyn, New York.
Her tenure in New York is decorated with performances and collaborations, both formal and informal; with contemporaries, legends, and counterparts; on rooftops, good and bad floors, and alleyways; on stage, in film, art, on tour, and on the fly; since 2004.
Her independent work has been presented in New York, where she aims to conjure life-long questions of identity, confuse and disrupt traditional narratives, and demonstrate the angsty, explosive, sensitive, pioneering excellence of the black woman.
Leslie has been creating and performing in self-produced shows with her collaborators under the name Happydog for thirteen years.
After working at a digital agency for six years, Leslie has joined the collaborative group Thursday Studio, where she continues to find digital solutions for clients through thoughtful design and strategy.
