The artists of Dante Brown|Warehouse Dance are warm-hearted, versatile movers with rigorous training and lush, full-bodied physicality. These individuals come from vastly different experiences. The work we create together is designed to encourage questions from our artists and audiences alike. Questions that relate not only to the work but to how we view ourselves day-to-day. Our collaborative is united by a collective interest in highly physical movement, an intellectual commitment to exploring social justice and the absurdity of our culture. Since its founding in 2010, Warehouse Dance has shown work at Bates Dance Festival (ME), Boston Contemporary Dance Festival and Dance Complaexl (MA), Columbus Dance Theater and Wexner Center for the Arts (OH), Dance Complex (Boston), Dance Gallery Festival (NY & TX), Dixon Place, GAP Green Building, LaMaMa Moves Festival, Movement Research at Judson Church, Triskelion Arts and The Wild Project (all NYC), Sam Houston State University (TX), and YourMove Dance Festival (NJ), among others.
