“Curran emerges as a sublime choreographer, creating complexly musical phrases for a company that literally rises to meet his expectations.”
–The Village Voice
Sean Curran originally made his mark on the dance world as a leading dancer with the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zanes Dance Company, receiving the dance world’s highest performing honor – the Bessie Award. He now performs and choreographs worldwide with his company Sean Curran Company, and uses his dynamic energy and artistry to create original works for Broadway, The Shakespeare Theater, The Metropolitan Opera, international modern and ballet companies, and university dance programs. Sean and one of his company members, Isaac Gonyo, created an original work titled Field/trip, with 14 Alfred University students that was performed at the AU Dance Theater Concert in February. During his week-long residency, he taught several classes open to all students, faculty and community members; gave a public lecture where he discussed his international experience performing in dance, theater and performance art; and choreographed and rehearsed with the students.
