Brandon believes in creating work that connects with both the dancers and the viewer. One of the greatest issues facing the dance community today is the inability for works to connect with the general public. In an effort to create more accessible dance, Brandon's work revolves around relatable ideas, touches on physical theater, and challenges the idea of status in dance.

 

BACKtrackDANCE

BACKtrackDANCE is a series of short dance videos that have all been reversed. Each solo features a NYC/Chicago based dancer and was choreographed/structured, filmed, and edited entirely on an iPhone and within one hour. The goal of BACKtrackDANCE was to produce/present work in a timely and cost effective manner.  A new video will be posted every Wednesday, November 1- December 27.
