CHRISTOPHER K. MORGAN & ARTISTS
Christopher K. Morgan & Artists is a professional contemporary dance company whose work stems from a belief in the urgency of live performance in an increasingly isolating, commercial, and digital world. Founded in July 2011, as a vehicle for Morgan’s choreographic exploration of social and cultural issues, the Company provides a creative outlet for its artists and collaborators through virtuosic and expressive dance performances.
Dance Exchange breaks boundaries between stage and audience, theater and community, movement and language, tradition and the unexplored. Founded in 1976 by Liz Lerman and now under the artistic direction of Cassie Meador, Dance Exchange stretches the range of contemporary dance through explosive dancing, personal stories, humor, and a company of performers whose ages span six decades.
