Born and raised in Gainesville GA, Zoe began ballet at a young age, instilling in her a deep love and interest in structure, discipline and performances’ ability to create a transformative experience. Zoe attended Walnut Hill School for the Arts, an arts high school in Boston MA, receiving a Monticello Choreography Fellowship and graduating with high honors in dance.

Founder of The Theorists, Amy Diane Morrow, is a teacher, dance-maker, consultant, and Artistic Director of AM Arts. Morrow is a veteran teacher of the revolutionary movement language, Gaga. Trained and Certified by Ohad Naharin, Morrow travels internationally offering Gaga & Toolbox workshops.
Theorist collaborators come from diverse backgrounds from physics to psychology, geology, and technology, ages 14-94 with movers of mixed abilities. They hail from México, Guatemala, Brazil, Columbia, Richmond, Korea, NYC, India, The Middle East, and deep in the heart of Texas. Their collaborations have been shared extensively across the Southwest, México, and from New York to Delhi.
Commissions for The Theorists include The Downtown Austin Alliance, Detroit Dance City Festival Gala, AROVA Ballet, Wanderlust Dance Project, Ballet Dallas, and Avant Chamber Ballet in collaboration with the Dallas Symphony. Nancy Wozny selected “The Lady of” portrait as one of Arts & Culture’s standouts for the 2015 season, “a sassy mix of precision & abandon, something we rarely see on contemporary dance stages.”
// CREATIVE PROCESSES // Following morning sessions, join Faculty Zoe Scofield and Amy Morrow along with guest artists from Mexico and dive into two creative processes.Our vision is to share a hedonic map of our community through movement on a local and global scale aided by science and technology.
Together, we will incubate innovative choreographic proposals to develop throughout the 2019/20 Season at Theorist Fest Oct 2019, in residencies at the ESB-MACC, Keshet Center for the Arts, & artistic exchanges across Mexico.
