My name is Nico Brown. I make dances and I live in Brooklyn, NY.
I moved to Brooklyn from rural, southern Illinois. I make dances, usually solos, that address my relationship to landscape, queerness, my love of ballet, and formal composition. These things converge in my work. I'd call myself a minimalist.
My dances have been presented at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival Inside/Out, New York Live Arts, La Mama Experimental Theater, Gibney Dance Center, and Brooklyn Arts Exchange.
Sometimes I perform for other choreographers, including Jon Kinzel, Jennifer Monson, Cat Galasso, Renée Wadleigh, and Wally Cardona + Jennifer Lacey. I'm a regular at Movement Research at the Judson Memorial Church, and I study ballet with Janet Panetta.
I hold an MFA in Dance and a BFA in Theatre Stage Management, both from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
