Based in New York City, Brendan Duggan Choreography aims to constantly examine the definition of contemporary dance, the possibilities within the human body for choreographic expression, and the ways that choreography can be challenged by multidisciplinary influences. Each work creates performance experiences that allow for accessible, emotionally resonant content, and a fresh perspective on movement's role in telling each story.
