Eichten is a graduate of the Juilliard School, where she received the Hector Zaraspe Award in recognition of her choreography in 2011. Eichten was a founding member of L.A. Dance Project and is a current member of AMOC* (American Modern Opera Company). Last summer, Eichterling, an ongoing project with creative partner Bret Easterling had a premiere of their latest work, “Dance in The Park,” at the Ojai Music Festival. ‘What followed was a joyous, frockling pas de deux of love, extinction and human evolution — Charles Darwin meets Fantasia.’- SF Chronicle. At the start of 2023, Eichten was choreographer and the co-director of “Expostulations of Mary,” a new chamber opera for voices, strings, dance, and electronics with composer Eliza Bagg and director, George R. Miller. Eichten performed and was movement director in Carolyn Chen’s, “How to Fall Apart,” at Baryshnikov Art Center, NYC. Last year, at Frieze Art Festival, Eichten performed an excerpt of, “Julie with a Beet,” as a part of Open Studios at L.A. Dance Project, Los Angeles, CA.’This smart choreographic rhythm by Eichten is the kind of dance that you always want to stumble upon and be taken by surprise with.’ – LA Chronicle. Eichten performed in Bobbi Jean Smith’s “Broken Theater” at Carolina Performing Arts, Chapel Hill, NC & Oz Arts, Nashville and most recently to a sold out run at La Mama, NYC. ‘Julia Eichten, in the role of stage manager, provides some much-needed comic relief.’ – NY Times. At the start of 2024, Julia performed and choreographed in “ISOLA” composed by Alyssa Weinberg and Directed by George R. Miller, ‘The linchpin of this production was the physical theater of Eichten,’ SF Classical Voice.
