Choreographer Brian Brooks
Choreographer Brian Brooks has recently been appointed the inaugural Choreographer in Residence at Chicago's Harris Theater for Music and Dance. He is currently touring a duet evening with former NY City Ballet Principal Dancer Wendy Whelan and string quartet Brooklyn Rider.
Company Brian Brooks’ ensemble work has toured internationally since 2002 with presentations by the Joyce Theater, American Dance Institute at The Kitchen, Jacob’s Pillow, American Dance Festival, BAM’s Next Wave Festival, NY City Center’s Fall for Dance Festival, the Guggenheim Museum, Lincoln Center Out of Doors Festival and at festivals throughout South Korea in Seoul, Gwangju and Goyang.
Performance Torrent (2013) is a joyous, complex work set to Max Richter’s reimagined score of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. Sweeping dance phrases and meticulously crafted patterns ricochet around and beyond the stage. Torrent was originally commissioned by Juilliard Dance for New Dances: Edition 2013, and the company has performed variations adapted for anywhere from 4 to 24 dancers.
