BWW Reviews: Energetic, Intriguing, Surprising, SEAN CURRAN COMPANY Opens at The Joyce

January 31
2:16 2013

Curran collaborated with his dancers on the choreography for both of the premiere pieces, proving above and beyond his deep investment to the choreographic art. Curran and his troupe bring a feeling of intensity to their material while succeeding in entertaining their audience with graceful athleticism and complex patterning.

Seán Curran began his dance training with traditional Irish step dancing as a young boy in Boston, Massachusetts. He went on to make his mark on the dance world as a leading dancer with the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company. Curran was an original member of the off-Broadway hit, Stomp. He is a graduate and guest faculty member of New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. With an impressive performance career and with a myriad of successful projects, Curran is known for his wit, intelligence, ingenuity and uncanny physical humor and a totally original style. Happiest when making new work or performing, Seán Curran hopes to continue being an ambassador for the art of dance by building and educating the dance audiences of tomorrow.

The Seán Curran Dance Company will perform at The Joyce Theater on Thursday January 31st at 8:00 pm with a dance chat after the performance, on Saturday, February 2nd at 2:00pm and 8:00pm. The Joyce is located at 175 8th Avenue in New York City. Tickets can be purchased by calling (212) 691-9740, visiting the box office or at
