Chris Bisram is an Indo-Caribbean multidisciplinary artist with a primary focus in dance and theater. Bisram has completed a work-study and summer intensive at Green Space, a dance studio in Queens. They performed in the Fertile Ground Showcase at Green Space, and City of Forest Day by IDig2Learn, a Roosevelt Island environmental education collective. At City of Forest Day, they choreographed and performed a piece to portray the possible stages of life a tree might experience. Bisram has also taken part in the Artichoke Ambassadorship program, which helps foster one's knowledge and abilities in environmental based art practices.
Currently, Bisram is a teaching artist at LIC High School, where they teach and run an after-school program through a nonprofit organization called Zone 126. They are exploring teaching dance through a mostly non-Eurocentric point of view. Along with this, Bisram is currently enrolled in CUNY Hunter's BA program in Dance Education.
They gained experience in sculpture during their time at Socrates Sculpture Park as a Socrateen and through the Make Your Mark program at Noguchi Museum. Bisram also writes and performs poetry. They earned a spot in Gallery Aferro's Poem Booth Exhibition; the chosen poem "My Drunk Dad" discussing the trauma of growing up with an alcoholic father.
As an independent artist, they helped co-facilitate the art collective/stewardship Kin to the Cove, which grew out of the water- and time-based performance artwork 36.5 / A Durational Performance with the Sea by Sarah Cameron Sunde. Through this collective, they created and led a few projects centered on water pollution, climate change, and/or water's place in their life, including For the Depths of Us, Meh Mudda Deh Sea, and We are all Kin to the Cove, in collaboration with The Remote Theater Project.
Bisram has held numerous roles in the arts, including Event Coordination at Socrates Sculpture Park, Teen Artist at Socrates Sculpture Park and Noguchi Museum, Artist Assistant and Community Mobilizer to Sarah Cameron Sunde, Dance Facilitator at Zone 126, and Production Assistant at Dance Entropy/ Green Space.
