The Brian Brooks Moving Company first debuted in 1997 when Brooks self-produced his dances at the Merce Cunningham Studio. The production featured a short film of Brooks dancing at eleven different public places within eight hours; the event caught the attention of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, who funded a second "Performance Marathon," sending Brooks and his group to the Brooklyn Bridge, Grand Central, and the aisles of a deli.
Alethea Adsitt & Company's core focus is to bring to the fore innovative performance territories, through the union of movement, text and visual design. Initiated from the body's profound potential for expression, a unique movement language is unearthed.
