Meg Wolfe, independent choreographer and dancer

Wolfe has risen to prominence in Los Angeles' small but proud avant-garde dance scene. REDCAT presented her group work, "trembler.SHIFTER," last June. She will perform solo in January on a 4-by-4-foot stage in "Ten Tiny Dances," part of the inaugural, alternative arts, Off Center Festival at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts. Since arriving from the Big Apple in 2004, she has made it her mission to help other independent, dance-based performance artists. To that end, she directs Show Box LA, a nonprofit organization that has been a presenter, publisher (a dance journal, Itch), and sponsor of Anatomy Riot, a series of informal showings at which dancers can workshop new material. Wolfe is bringing Anatomy Riot to an end on Jan. 22. Her next project: Native Strategies, a "network of performance artists, producers and critical thinkers" devoted to shining a global light on L.A.'s performance community. --Laura Bleiberg
