Contemporary American Dance
Description: Called “the ‘it’ boy of contemporary American dance” (Dallas Morning News), choreographer Brian Brooks has carved his niche with a unique and minimalist style—a style characterized as an electrified “exploration of human limits” by Dance Magazine. His company is known for shattering conventional notions of human strength and endurance, and they make their Northrop debut with a compelling and fast-paced program. “The coiling fullness of Mr. Brooks’ choreography, brimming with detail, frequently mesmerizes; you wonder how the dancers keep up.” (The New York Times)
