Bryan Arias

Dancer and emerging choreographer Bryan Arias has danced with companies such as Complexions Contemporary Ballet, Netherlands Dance Theater, and most recently, Crystal Pite's Kidd Pivot. He has been part of original creations and performed works by choreographers such as Jiri Kylian, Ohad Naharin, Crystal Pite and many others.
As a choreographer, Bryan received first place choreography and the audience choice awards for his work "Without Notice" at the 6th Copenhagen International Choreography Competition. He has choreographed works for the Juilliard school, Netherlands Dance Theater's "SWITCH" program, Manhattan Youth Ballet, The School at Peridance, and La Guardia School for the Arts.

The evening "A place where something flourishes" explores the fragility, permanence, necessity, and sanity associated with home and how one needs it for survival. Focused on translating global feelings of love, happiness, frustration, fear, doubt and so on in an articulate poetic manner. The compositions are a layering of emotions hidden in the subconscious and their embodied expressions. The goal is to both relate and evoke questions within the viewer through the organization of abstract and narrative movement.
