Event Description:
SUSAN MARSHALL & COMPANY will host a Master Class in the LPAC Troy Dance Studio as part of this year's Cooper Series. 

SUSAN MARSHALL & COMPANY’S repertory is an innovative body of work that blends virtuosic athleticism, ordinary movement, and gesture. The Company has a long history of multidisciplinary collaboration, with over 40 works made in collaboration with musicians, visual artists, and designers. Now celebrating its 26th anniversary, the company presents regular seasons in New York City, including many as part of the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Next Wave Festival and at 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. The company was honored to perform selections from its BESSIE Award-winning work Cloudless at Pina Bausch’s Internationales Tanzfestival Gala Concert in November 2008. Other critically acclaimed works by Marshall include Arms, Fields of View, Kiss, The Most Dangerous Room in the House, Sawdust Palace, and Spectators at an Event. Marshall, her artistic partners, and her company members have received 10 New York Dance and Performance Awards (BESSIES) for their work together. A recipient of a MacArthur 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.

Susan Marshall & Company will also present PLAY/PAUSE on February 14, 2014 In an electric guitar-fueled evening of postmodern dance-theater, Susan Marshall couples her intimate, structured choreography with the seductiveness of pop culture to explore our complex relationship to the media we consume. This evening-length piece for six dancers features a commissioned score by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang, performed live by members of electric guitar quartet Dither and Mantra Percussion. Play/Pause premiered in Chicago in September 2013. Please see the events calendar for more info.

The presentation of Susan Marshall & Company was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts 'National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
