Enrico D Wey



Enrico D. Wey's performative works have been on view since 2006 with humble beginnings at the St. Ann’s Warehouse Puppet Lab in Brooklyn. Future choreographic works took shape at Dance Theater Workshop (Fresh Tracks Artist Residency 2010), Abrons Art Center, Judson Church, Chocolate Factory Theater, the River to River Festival, and three seasons at Danspace Project (2009, 2013, 2016).

He has been a member of Handspring Puppet Company (South Africa) since 2004, puppeteering in Tall Horse, William Kentridge's Il Ritorno d'Ulisse, and as the lead role of "Joey" in Broadway/Lincoln Center’s War Horse, which garnered 5 Tony Awards in 2011.

Claimed by The New Yorker to be "a supple dancer who can express subtle strangeness and violence...a choreographer with a highly associative mind...", Wey has had the pleasure of working with Aitana Cordero, Milka Djordjevich, Trajal Harrell, Yvonne Meier, Big Dance Theater, Jen Rosenblit, Jassem Hindi, Jon Kinzel, and touring internationally with Ishmael Houston-Jones/Dennis Cooper/Chris Cochrane’s Bessie Award-winning reconstruction of THEM.

Other credits include: Resident Puppetry Director for Gefährten, co-curation of the 2012 Movement Research Spring Festival, and roles in the hit webseries The OUTS and Dennis Cooper/Zac Farley’s feature film Like Cattle Towards Glow (2014). His writings have recently been published in Tir Journal, International Notice, and Performance Research Journal.

He is under commission through Lower Manhattan Cultural Council’s Extended Life Dance Residency developing new work for Summer 2018 and is writing an interactive children’s book with Joby Earle. Enrico is from Taiwan.

Wey worked as a technical director/production manager on several tours in 2009 and 2010.
