The Brian Brooks Moving Company is, as its name suggests, all about moving. Brooks developed his audacious movement style as a dancer with MacArthur “Genius” Elizabeth Streb and has gone on to “shatter conventional notions of the human capacity for strength and endurance” (Dance Magazine). As a Creative Research Fellow with the UW, Brooks investigates the intimate spaces between bodies on the stage and within the virtual space created by immersive technologies. The program includes three world premieres: two ensemble works, one set to “Partita for 8 Voices” by Pulitzer Prize-winner Caroline Shaw, and a solo for Brooks.
