Tandy Beal, director, choreographer, performer, teacher and writer, has performed as a solo artist and with her ensemble in major cities and festivals on four continents. She has created works for dance, circus, film, television, theater, opera, animation, corporate events, industrials, and even a half time show for the San Francisco 49ers. She has performed with Alwin Nikolais, Remy Charlip, and Carolyn Carlson, among others. Ms. Beal wrote, directed and choreographed the Pickle Family Circus for ten years, the Moscow Circus in Japan for two years, and many corporate circus events across the U.S. The New York Times has called her a choreographer of ". . . taste and intelligence . . ." who, as she puts it, revels in "the mystery of being on planet e." Heisenberg Principle certainly fits those descriptors as it flirts with the idea of uncertainty.

Watch Tandy Beal's Heisenberg Principle at the Media Arcade in Vol. 40 of the Chamber Dance Company Archive (DVD UWDP 001 v.40).
