Chris Ferris & Dancers has been continually and unstoppably creating and producing new dances in the New York area for over 33 years.  This is choreography based on an interest in exploring movement from a sculptural, dynamically varied, and emotional point of view. For the love of extreme physicality and its expression, action is created that transforms bodies and space.  This movement has the potential to be composed as a painting or piece of music.  Structures and designs may be intricate yet at the same time human as bodies are repelled, collide, and bound through space.
