“Dance Repertory Theatre…guided its audiences to heaven.” - The Austin Chronicle
Under the direction of Charles O. Anderson, Yacov Sharir, and Andrea Beckham, The University of Texas at Austin’s award-winning dance company Dance Repertory Theatre is going “downtown” this season, presenting contemporary works inspired by New York City’s “downtown dance” scene. Fall For Dance includes works by nationally acclaimed choreographers including Christian Von Howard, Charles O. Anderson, Ellen Bartel and Andrea Beckham.
"Downtown dance historically pushes the boundaries, embraces movement for movement's sake and is rooted in experimentation and improvisation,” shares Co-Artistic Director Charles O. Anderson. “These characteristics, however, are elusive, which is one reason why geography—the movement was born south of 14th Street in Manhattan—is seen as the most concrete thread uniting the genre’s choreographers. Makers of downtown or experimental dance attempt to create new dances for the new moment.”
