Richard Move, Ph.D., M.F.A., is a TED Global Oxford Fellow and Artistic Director of MoveOpolis! Move's choreographic commissions include productions for Mikhail Baryshnikov and the White Oak Dance Project and two works for the Martha Graham Dance Company, in addition to creations for the European Capital of Culture/France, Guggenheim Museum/New York, Parrish Art Museum, Dame Shirley Bassey, New York City Ballet Principal, Heléne Alexopoulos and PARADIGM (Carmen de Lavallade, Gus Solomons, Jr., and Dudley Williams).

While Resident Artist at Monash University Melbourne, Australia in 2018, Move began collaborating with Astronaut - Artist Dr. Sarah Jane Pell on two new works, Stellar Corpus and LunAres SPECTRA Trans-missions. Both works unite the extreme performance of human spaceflight training with technologies such as VR (Virtual Reality), immersive photogrammetric data visualizations, interactive 3D and live motion capture exhibited in 360°. With LunAres, Pell and Move completed an analogue Moon to Earth to Moon choreographic transmission in 5/6 gravity between the Monash Future Control Room, CAVE2 Australia, and LunAres: Moon Mars Analogue Station, Poland.

Move earned their Ph.D., M.Phil., and M.A. in Performance Studies at New York University after receiving their M.F.A. in Media Arts Production from CUNY/The City College of New York and their B.F.A. in Dance from Virginia Commonwealth University.
