Founded in 2003 by Artistic Director Larry Keigwin and Associate Director Nicole Wolcott, KEIGWIN + COMPANY creates and presents Keigwin’s electrifying brand of contemporary dance.
K+C reaches national and international audiences and invigorates diverse communities with a refreshing vision of dance that embodies a theatrical sensibility of wit, style, and heart.
Community projects and education seek to physically engage audiences and aspiring dancers in movement and the choreographic process, and bring opportunities for individuals to become more invested in dance.
Since K+C’s premiere performance at Joyce Soho in 2003, Keigwin has created 26 dances, including the acclaimed large-scale community project, Bolero, which has been commissioned in 11 communities across the country, and Runaway (2008), a fashion-inspired choreographic ride, proclaimed a “thrilling coup d’theater’ by James Wolcott of Vanity Fair.
K+C celebrated its 10th Anniversary Season in 2013, generously supported by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. In 2015, the company commissioned two bright choreographic stars, Adam Barruch and Loni Landon, and engaged even broader audiences nationwide through performances, and expanded education initiatives.
For 15 years K+C has invigorated dance audiences worldwide and has presented performances at venues including The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Summerdance Santa Barbara, New York City Center, The Joyce Theater, American Dance Festival, Bates Dance Festival, and more. In 2017, K+C embarked on a tour to Cote d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, and Tunisia as a part of the sixth season DanceMotion USA, a program sponsored by Brooklyn Academy of Music and the U.S. Department of State.
K+C is currently developing its first film, Bolero Seniors. A poignant exploration of aging, community, and connection, Bolero Seniors is not your average dance, but a water ballet with a contemporary twist.
K+C has received grants and generous support from National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, American Music Center Live Music for Dance Program, the Howard Gilman Foundation, The Harkness Foundation for Dance, The O’Donnell-Green Music & Dance Foundation, New York Foundation for the Arts, The Jerome Robbins Foundation, The Shubert Foundation, The Christian Keesee Charitable Trust, and Dianne & Daniel Vapnek Family Fund.
