Pam Tanowitz Dance unites critically-acclaimed choreographer Pam Tanowitz with a company of world-class dance artists and renowned collaborators in all disciplines.

As a choreographer, Pam Tanowitz is known for her abstract treatment of classical and contemporary and movement ideas. The work is deeply rooted in formal structures, manipulated and abstracted by Tanowitz until the viewer sees through to the heart of the dance. The juxtapositions and tensions that Tanowitz creates draws upon the virtuosic skill, musical dexterity, and artistic integrity of the PTD dancers.

Since the company was founded in 2002, Pam Tanowitz Dance has received commissions and residencies at The Joyce Theater, Bard Summerscape Festival, New York Live Arts, The Guggenheim Museum’s Works & Process series, Dance Theater Workshop, Dancespace Project, Lincoln Center Out of Doors, Chicago Dancing Festival, Baryshnikov Arts Center and Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival. Pam Tanowitz Dance has been selected by the New York Times Best of Dance series in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017, 2018 and 2019. Her 2018 work Four Quartets was on The Guardian’s “Best Dance Shows of 2019” list, the ArtsDesk “Best of 2019” dance list, and the 2019 entry for The London Sunday Times “Best by Decade” dance list.

“As these performers move, the choreography makes them fascinating, complex, surprising. They both look tenderly human and resemble the soft luminescence of moths at night.” – Alastair Macaulay,  The New York Times
