Renowned for its unique and electric brand of contemporary dance, KEIGWIN + COMPANY enthralls audiences with its strong theatrical sensibility, wit, and affinity for pop culture. The company was formed in 2003 by Larry Keigwin, an exceptional performer whose own dancing has been compared to the legendary Vaslav Nijinsky. Welcomed as a fresh new voice in the dance world, The New York Times described Keigwin’s choreography as “a parcel of pure explosive energy mediated by impressive technical skills.” Inspired by his dancers, human relationships, and public observations, Keigwin believes that the art of choreography is about excavating personalities, shaping stories, and building communities – perhaps best evidenced by Bolero, KEIGWIN + COMPANY’S critically-acclaimed large-scale community project commissioned by seven communities nationwide. The Company also ventured into the world of high-fashion with Runaway, a fashion-inspired dance described by Vanity Fair as “a thrilling coup d’theater.” Don’t miss this invigorating and innovative dance company!
