Robert Woofter is a control freak, sporadic drag queen, and founder of haus of bambi (hausofbambi.com), a dance and film company in DC. His work has been commissioned for Vogue.com and the Kennedy Center and has been presented in New York City at the wild project, Movement Research at Judson Church, Dixon Place, and Triskelion Arts. Robert is interested in the juxtapositions of the gaudy and subdued, the crude and refined, and the classical and contemporary as he lives by the motto “extravagance is a virtue.”
Robert holds an MFA from the University of Michigan and trained at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, Ballet Austin, The Rock School, The Boston Conservatory, Hubbard Street Dance, and The School at Jacob's Pillow. Robert performed professionally in New York with Ishmael Houston-Jones, Christopher Williams, Austin McCormick’s Company XIV (as an originating member in the New York Times critic’s pick Baroque Burlesque), and Gillian Walsh (as performer/collaborator in the Bessie Award nominated Grinding and Equations).
