Chris Ferris & Dancers is known for its fearless action, physical indulgence, and elegant design. Fists pound the floor, bodies spiral with tactile awareness, and the planes of raw space are rearranged again and again until you are dancing in your seat. Dances inhabit space by weaving a fabric of movement that varies from intricate to sweeping, light to determined, and is always part of a larger spatial design. Movement is organized dynamically and varied as a piece of visual music with focus on the sculptural qualities of bodies in action consuming limitless verses limited space. In an atypical style, the dances are begun first and the music is made in reaction, creating a give and take situation. As a result the performers become very connected by listening to one another, and use that extra dancer sense of “where one is in space”, as they react to one other in a vibrant conversation of movement.

Urban Pastoral an outdoor improvisation with 10 sculptural lights by Warren Kloner, 10 dancers, and live music by Loren Dempster and Brian Adler was presented at the Tobacco Warehouse, Brooklyn Bridge Park; The High Line, Manhattan; and Central Park, near Turtle Pond in Sept. 2013.

Chris Ferris & Dancers performed Circuitous Body, a full evening collaboration with composer Loren Dempster, on April 22, 2012 presented by Roulette, Brooklyn NY. Circuitous Body was then presented by Green Space in Long Island City, NY with partial support by the Mertz Gilmore Foundation Late-Stage Production Stipend in Nov. 2012. Our 2011 concert, Continental Drift, was presented at CPR– Center for Performance Research. Proximity Of Clouds (2010 full evening work), premiered at Joyce SoHo NYC; incorporating sculptures that hang, swing, slash, glow, and illuminate. The company has presented 3 season concerts in New York at the Cunningham Studio. Chris Ferris & Dancers has also performed at Green Space Blooms, 92nd Street Y Harkness Dance Center, Rebound Dance Festival, Performance Mix, Solar Powered Dance Festival, Dance Conversations at the Flea, WAXworks, SWEAT Modern Dance Series, d.u.m.b.o. Dance Festival, Movement Research at Judson Church, University Settlement, and a variety of other venues.

This is dance created for the love of physicality and its expression. The structure and design may be complicated but it also can be human as bodies are repelled, collide, and bound through space. We are determined to give you more action than you have seen all day and make you acutely aware of its existence in your day to day life.
