Gibney Company will perform its summer 2022 season in New York City at New York Live Arts with a program of three world premieres by internationally recognized choreographers Rena ButlerGustavo Ramírez Sansano, and Yin Yue.


The five-night run, titled Up Close, will present a range of contemporary choreographic styles and compositions. Works on the program reflect present-day concerns around reconfiguring and maintaining identity, while navigating personal and shared spaces.


Loosely referencing the “Allegory of the Cave” from Book 7 of Plato’s Republic, Rena Butler’s Re | Build | Construct examines how our realities are shaped by personal and shared environments. Gustavo Ramírez Sansano’s To the End of Love explores how technology has changed the pursuit of romance. In A Measurable Existence, Yin Yue delves into how we discover aspects of ourselves by discovering others.

Gibney Company is a creation-based repertory company commissioning work from both internationally renowned and emerging choreographers who are committed to exploring connections between the rigorous, often superhuman physicality of contemporary dance alongside responsive, humanistic storytelling.

About Gibney
Founded by Gina Gibney in 1991, Gibney is a New York City-based performing arts and social justice organization that taps into the vast potential of movement, creativity, and performance to effect social change and personal transformation. Gibney deploys resources through three strategic and interwoven program areas: Gibney Center, a meeting ground for New York City’s artistic community comprising 23 studios and 5 performance spaces that provide critical space for training, rehearsal, professional development, performances, and convenings; Gibney Community, programs that use movement to help address a range of social issues with a focus on gender-based violence and its prevention; and Gibney Company. Gibney supports movement-based artists in every aspect of their creative development: classes, residencies, low-cost rental space, entrepreneurial training and incubation, presentation opportunities, commissioning, and operating a professional dance company.
