BRKFST Dance Company
Reimagining an excerpt of “Seconds”
Performed by University Dance Students
BRKFST Dance Company founded in 2014, is based in Saint Paul/Minneapolis, MN. As a collaborative ensemble, BRKFST creates thoughtful, dynamic, introspective works combining highly physical breaking movement and contemporary dance vernacular to expand awareness on topics that address marginalized and underserved populations: the working class, queer identity, BIPOC identity, and their personal relationships to this country. BRKFST Dance Company articulates the lived experience of diverse and contemporary artists, contests society’s expectations of their chosen form by placing breaking in unconventional environments, and complicates the medium of dance itself by incorporating abstract, narrative, and pedestrian movement into their impressive, rigorous, physically virtuosic compositions.
This program is made possible by The Sage Cowles Land Grant Chair /Cowles Visiting Artist Residency Program.
