February 7, 2013



The Brian Brooks Moving Company  brings their newest dance, BIG CITY which celebrates the human effort inherent in the process of rebuilding. BIG CITY boasts a large-scale, kinetic sculpture constructed with hundreds of aluminum columns, showcasing Brooks’s affinity for architectural design. This dynamic floor-to-ceiling installation is raised in real time before the audience’s eyes, memorializing the inevitable reconstruction that follows loss. Performed by the company’s seven dancers, Brooks’ choreography hovers between balance and imbalance, testing limits of physical and emotional endurance. BIG CITY features an original score by composer Jonathan Pratt, costumes by long-time collaborator Roxana Ramseur, lighting by Philip Treviño and set by Brooks and Treviño.

The Brian Brooks Moving Company has presented throughout the US, Asia and Europe since 2002. The group has been presented by organizations including Lincoln Center, Symphony Space, Central Park Summerstage and the 92nd Street Y Harkness Festival. National tours have included presentations by the American Dance Festival, Jacob’s Pillow, Vanderbilt University, Davidson College, the Egg and Wesleyan University.
