KEIGWIN + COMPANY Just Got Even Cooler
Oh my gosh, you guys: I am obsessed with KEIGWIN + COMPANY. (If you read our February cover story, you’re already well aware of that obsession.) They’re making modern dance fun, one deliciously outrageous dance at a time.
One of the coolest things about K + C is their collaborative choreographic process. Larry Keigwin, the artistic director, is definitely the ringleader, but all of K + C’s dancers contribute to the company’s pieces. And when a bunch of brilliant dance brains get together, awesome things happen.
Sound like something you might want to try out? Now you can. This May, K + C is hosting its first summer intensive, “Let’s Make a Dance,” at The Juilliard School in NYC. Participants in the week-long program will get a taste of what it’s like to be a K + C dancer as they create, dance, partner and perform with company members. It sounds totally, totally sweet. Or, in Keigwin’s much more eloquent words: “The art of choreography is about excavating personalities, shaping stories, and building communities. Watching a group of talented dancers create is not only stimulating, it’s electrifying.”
Just look how much fun the K + C dancers had at our photo shoot! How could you pass up a chance to hang out with these guys?
