Jennifer Muller and Elisa Monte are two vastly experienced and distinguished choreographers who create work with powerful and highly original voices. Now at the height of their creative careers, they are presenting a diverse selection of work, including company favorites and a world premiere. As choreographers, they are distinctly different but share the sensibility of creating work that combines virtuosic movement with an expressive edge that touches the heart – work that dances full out yet speaks of both individual experiences and shared humanity.
