Stephan Koplowitz is known for developing multimedia works that are site-specific in various urban sites which are attributed with architectural significance. One of his works' first commissions was held at New York's Grand Central Terminal by Dancing in the Streets for Fenestrations. As he had been able to compose more than 28 site works, he was given a 2000 Bessie Award for Sustained Achievement in Choreography and a 2004 Alpert Award in the Arts, among several others. While he taught and served as Dean for the Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance at CalArts, he also served as the director/producer of Taskforce—an international site-specific touring dance company. In all his site-specific dances, Koplowitz attempts to make the audience experience the thrill of public performances when they witness events that are site-specific. In his essay, Koplowitz explains the four categories of site art, particularly the one that is really “site-specific.”
