Hilary Easton's choreography has been often praised for its intelligence and spark. The work investigates the complexity of the human condition through deft choreographic structure and dynamic physicality. The company has been presented since 1992 at venues including American Dance Festival, The Danspace Project at St. Mark’s Church, Dance Theater Workshop, PS 122, The Center for Contemporary Arts of Santa Fe, Women and Their Work, The University of Texas, Bennington College, Central Park Summerstage, The Yard, and Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors. The Company's work has been hailed by The New York Times as “visionary in its simple affirmation of the magic of art and the human spirit”, and by The Village Voice as “marvelous and deeply thoughtful."
The company most recently premiered Radiator at the Gibney Dance Center.
