Susan Marshall & Company

Susan Marshall & Company performs regularly in New York City, including six appearances at BAM’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 in 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 2008. Susan Marshall’s works have also been performed by Hubbard Street, Nederlands Dans Theater, and Pacific Northwest Ballet, among others. Marshall is known for an innovative body of work—including Arms, Fields of View, Kiss, The Most Dangerous Room in the House, Sawdust Palace, and Spectators at an Event—that weaves ordinary movement, gesture, and touch into intricate formal structures. She was a recipient of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Award in 2000, as well as a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1990, a Brandeis Creative Arts Award in 1993, a Dance Magazine Award in 1995, and three Bessie Awards, in 1985, 1997, and 2006. Marshall has been the director of dance at Princeton University since 2009.
