Born in 1960, Frey Faust
began performing at the age of 8 with his family as a traveling troubadour. He is a second generation contact improviser and an alumnus of the
80´s New York dance scene. Some of his more important early influences came from: Shekhinah Mountainwater, Nita Little, Pavel Rouba, Rene Bazinet, and Janet Panetta. He has
worked with and for a number of artists (order of appearance): Ohad Naharin, Donald Byrd, David Parsons, Gina Buntz, Howard Katz, Merce Cunningham, Meredith Monk, Randy
Warshaw, Bob Een, Stephen Petronio, Danny Ezralow... to name a few. He founded or co-founded three dance companies, and has created or co-created over 40 choreographic solo
and group works. Following an independent study of anatomy, biomechanics, and physics, he has been able to build a pedagogical approach that has made him a sought after
teacher, personal coach and technical counselor. After fifteen years of research, he consolidated his findings in a book, 'The Axis Syllabus - human movement lexicon'
, which he
continues to edit with the
help of the Axis Syllabus Research Meshwork
. Founded in 2009, the ASIRN is a rapidly expanding group of
experts from many related fields in the human movement and education sciences. Recently, his work on the AS has been focused on the provision of an online "university" for the
study of the human body: The ASRM Forum,
as the construction of a symbol set with the potential to streamline movement documentation, creation and analysis, The Axis Syllabus Notation System
. He also makes shoes, speaks 4 languages, and continues to create and perform dances.
