In the company’s 8 year history performances and festivals have included: the Joyce Soho, Ailey Citigroup Theater, Baruch Performing Arts Center, The Dixon Place, The Cunningham Studios, City Center, 3 Legged Dog, Jazz at Lincoln Center/Rose Hall, Denton PAC, Downtown Dance, Wave Rising, International Dance Festival, Elan Dance Festival, Queens Dance Festival and LaGuardia Performing Arts Center. BODYART has had the pleasure of teaching across the country at several leading institutions as: Booker T Washington HSPVA, TCU, UT, Northwestern University, Sam Houston State, San Jose University, Elon University, Brookhaven College, Connecticut College and the Branden Ballet. In 2012, BODYART initiated their first annual teaching intensive in NYC. In the past 5 years the company has been commissioned to set over 15 works on Universities and repertory dance companies.
Visual art is equally important to BODYART’s creation. BODYART recently completed their 5th collaboration with underwater photographer Chris Crumley. The created work is featured in both the stage performances as well as printed publications. The images from the company’s shoot in Turks & Caicos were featured in the photographer’s coffee table book Femme de la Mer.
The company has also begun work in the medium of Dance films. The Decay Project is a series of 5 movement-based short films born out of broken down and/or decayed spaces in our everyday landscape. From natural disasters to spaces left in ruin by years of neglect, TDP finds beauty in unexpected places through collaborations with local artists. For more information visit our Film Works page.
