About the Repertoire
Battery Dance Company has brought 70 dances to the world's stages since its inception in 1976, choreographed by artistic director Jonathan Hollander. Battery's dances have been presented in mainstage theaters, concert halls, and festivals in a dozen countries on three continents as well as in theaters, museums, universities, schools, studios and alternative spaces across the U.S.
Battery's repertoire ranges from ensemble works to solos, most often set to contemporary scores in a multitude of genres. Music is the driving and consistent force behind Hollander's choreography, and his relationships with composers from the U.S., Europe and South Asia have inspired the creation of dozens of collaborative works.
Works in Progress
Battery Dance Company is a laboratory for the research and development of new choreography. Visit the Works in Progress section of our website in order to share in the process of inspiration and inquiry that characterizes Battery's artistic evolution.
