About

Brian Brooks Moving Company | August 12⁠—16

World Premiere

A “master of momentum” (Chicago Tribune) and Guggenheim Fellow, Brian Brooks has choreographed for Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Miami City Ballet, Wendy Whelan, and his own New York-based company.

In The Moving Company’s first Pillow performance since 2013, they perform a world premiere, Brooks’s most recent creation Closing Distance, and Brooks himself presents his first solo work created in five years.

Closing Distance is set to a Pulitzer Prize-winning score by composer Caroline Shaw, and features the eight-voice Williamstown, MA-based ensemble Roomful of Teeth. Brooks’s solo features music by Bryce Dessner, Grammy Award-winning classical composer and founding member of The National.

Brooks is an award-winning choreographer, who “shatter[s] conventional notions of the human capacity for strength and endurance” (Dance Magazine). He established The Moving Company in 2002.
