As a choreographer, collaborator and creative consultant, the artifacts of Wanda Gala's work have been present at the American Dance Festival, Redcat, Highways Performance Space, The Redcat, The Kitchen, The New Museum, and Abrons Arts Center. She has served as an artist in residence at the Music Center of Los Angeles (2005‐2006), teacher at the Silesian Contemporary Dance Festival in Bytom, Poland (2006‐2008) and Fabrica de Polivar, Oeiras, Portugal (2011). Recently Narcisister’s “The Organ Player” for which Gala served as co-choreographer and creative consultant, was nominated for a 2013 Bessie for Outstanding Production (on the forefront of contemporary performance).

"I am interested in honing performance environments that encase the process of developing dance as the context for its staging. In this way I am researching dance performance as a method of disseminating discursive knowledge about the subjective realities of the individual. My work is rooted in the writing, development and performance of scores that allow process and performance to become a direct mirror for value, choice and desire. I am crafting an approach to dance creation and performance that provokes the expression of subtle embodied phenomena, individually and communally, in real time."
