Brian Brooks—Wizard of Invention and Movement

by Susan Yung

Brian Brooks Moving Company brings a new piece, Run Don't Run, to the BAM Fisher on October 22. Here are a few examples of Brooks' previous works to give a sense of the 2013 Guggenheim fellow's imagination, range, endurance, and obsessiveness.

WHEEL—This performance in Santa Barbara, CA made a stage of the whole gorgeous city, and the dancers bicycled between locations over the course of a day.


RAPID STILL—Brooks can be a wizard with movement and invention, but thanks to some brilliant shooting and editing, he seems to have obtained his desired superpower of flight.

FALL FALLS—And if flight were not enough, how about collaborating with one of the most beloved ballerinas of our time, New York City Ballet principal Wendy Whelan, here at the Vail International Dance Festival?

Come see what Brian has up his sleeve in the New York premiere of Run Don't Run at the Fishman Space.
