Caitlin Corbett Dance Company

Caitlin Corbett, artistic director of Caitlin Corbett Dance Company, has been presenting work in the Boston area since 1984. Her early involvement with the leading voices of New York's avant-garde helped shape an aesthetic that juxtaposes the sublime beauty of everyday movement with the innovation of modern dance. Her repertoire ranges from work with trained dancers: Rain (2002) a lush and rigorous octet; to work which includes untrained performers: Joycie’s Pie (1992), in which a pedestrian chorus line of skippers provide counterpoint to the movements of the formally trained dancers. "Her movement vocabulary - which is lush and spare at once - is so distinctive that is has the kinesthetic effect of a rich flavor lingering on your tongue… Corbett's work not only addresses intellectual questions but also has humor and heart." Thea Singer, Boston Globe
