The work of Blum Dance Theatre has been noted for ‘virtuosity of the awkward’ ( DanceInsider ) and for performing dark-humored, “eccentric dances about vulnerable human balances” ( The New Yorker ). The company has been presented since 1998 at venues including Danspace Project at St. Mark’s Church, PS 122, The Yard, The Painted Bride Arts Center, the 92nd Street Y, the Brooklyn Lyceum, Wesleyan University, the Vineyard Theater, Joyce Soho, Movement Research at the Judson Church, Dixon Place, Brooklyn Arts Exchange, Bowery Poetry Project, Galapagos Art Space, WOW Café, La Mama Theater, Manhattan Theater Source, the Ice Theater of New York and Toronto’s Buddies in Bad Times Theater.

Blum Dance Theatre has been a recipient of artist residencies through Movement Research, the Yard, Union Street Dance and Palenville Arts Colony. The company has been honored with grants from The Jerome Foundation and Meet The Composer.

Blum Dance Theatre’s upcoming performances include: David Parker’s WET Series (showcase January 25-28, 2007), a full evening Dixon Place (March 29-31), and The Danspace Project at St. Mark’s Church (winter/spring, 2008).

Blum Dance Theatre shapes time and designs space into moving images that mix abstraction with hot-blooded physicality. The company investigates extreme and contorted movement and focuses on dance as a serious time-art form with the capacity to express identity, honor conflicting opinions, and reflect the tenor of our historical moment.
