Brandin Steffensen
Brandin Steffensen is a dance artist presently performing with Liz Gerring Dance, Christopher Williams, and with the lovely Keely Garfield. His experiments with improvisational practices are an evolving transposition of ideas culled from game theory, complexity theory, and his research with artists Nancy Stark Smith, Deborah Hay, and Chris Aiken. His design Pentamode has been presented at Bates Dance Festival, Dance Theater Workshop, The Harkness 92nd Street Y, and AIR on Metropolitan. He has produced his own choreography in his show NEWS & More @ 8, which includes his solo adaptation of Deborah Hay’s News. He choreographed for Jonathan Caouette’s recent film Mountain Park. He is the founder and artistic director of the Catskill Collaborative, an annual residency program in Catskill, New York. Steffensen has performed with Brian Brooks Moving Company, Lawrence Goldhuber, Yoshiko Chuma, and in reconstructions of Alwin Nikolais’s master works with Salt Lake City’s repertory Ririe Woodbury Dance Company. He holds a BFA in Modern Dance from the University of Utah, and currently hosts a monthly practice group researching with a form conceived by Nancy Stark Smith known as Underscore.
