Continuum Dance Project is a Boston-based collaborative dance ensemble led by co-artistic directors Adriane Brayton and Fernadina Chan. Continuum Dance Project blends music and movement to investigate the many facets of human relationships. Using raw sound as a cornerstone—live music, body percussion, vocals—the company enjoys performing in unconventional settings. Be it on staircases, on safes, or in saunas and backyards, Brayton Dance strives to be at the forefront of contemporary dance through its exploration of non-traditional vantage points.
