Susan Marshall and Company in residence

June 7, 2013

This June Skidmore welcomes Susan Marshall and Company to campus.

Susan Marshall and Company

Now in its 26th season, the company is known for works that blend virtuoso athleticism, ordinary movement, gesture and pattern, and the spoken word. Each year the company performs in New York City, including the Brooklyn Academy of Music and the Dance Theater Workshop. Other notable engagements include presentations at Jacob’s Pillow, the Edinburgh International Festival, Spoleto Festival, Vienna Tanz, Springdance Festival (The Netherlands) and the Los Angeles Festival.

Marshall, her artistic partners, and her company members have received 10 New York Dance and Performance Awards (BESSIES) for their work. A recipient of a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship in 2000, Marshall has also received a Dance Magazine award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and was one of the first artists to receive an American Choreographer Award.
