Articles by Matthew Murphy
*Matthew Murphy has been dancing ever since he choreographed a Star Wars ballet in his basement as a kid. He has since moved on to dancing with American Ballet Theatre, but he still dreams of one day bringing a corps of dancing Stormtroopers to the stage. In the meantime, he’s got a camera glued to his face as he tries shooting everything around him. Between dancing, choreographing, writing and taking pictures, he’s got his hands full of artistic projects. Some may say his addiction to Peanut Butter Puffins is a problem, but Murphy claims the delicious cereal fuels his artistic life. How else could he explore so many ventures with so much success? His blog is read by hundreds, his dancing seen by thousands. He does it all with a sense of humor. Now if only he could get that Star Wars ballet off the ground. For movmnt, Matthew approached two different aspects of the dance world with his portraits of Kenny Wormald, soon to be seen in Center Stage 2, and a look at music composer Nico Muhly, who’s latest piece was featured by American Ballet Theatre. Matthew Murphy is now movmnt magazine's Copy Editor.
