Nico Brown
 

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, RenĂ©e 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.

About my dances

I am currently negotiating my affinity for minimalist aesthetics against my love of big, extravagant dancing.

Say hey
