Sheldon B. Smith, Co-Artistic Director of Smith/Wymore Disappearing Acts, was a vital member of Chicago's experimental performance community for over fifteen years. Currently based in Berkeley, California, Sheldon considers himself as much a choreographer as he is a composer, video artist, and performer. His dances have been seen throughout the Midwest, Alaska, Colorado, and California, as well as in Philadelphia and NewYork City. He has taught dance technique, Music for Dance and Dance History at various institutions in Colorado and California and has taught a workshop on the use of multimedia software for live theater applications.

They were nominated for Sexiest show at the 2005 Dublin Fringe Festival and were nominated for two 2006 Isadora Duncan awards (San Francisco Dance Awards) for Best Choreography and Best Design. In 2006 their work was seen in San Francisco, Minneapolis, Zurich, and in several small towns in County Donegal Ireland, as part of the Eargail Arts Festival.
