LEVYdance was founded in 2002 in San Francisco by Benjamin Levy, and has presented original works at prestigious venues nationally and internationally. Beyond performing in traditional venues, LEVYdance also creates innovative installation works that redefine the relationship between performer and audience. Among LEVYdance's collaborators are Kronos Quartet, The Los Angeles Philharmonic, Mason Bates, and French couture designer Colleen Quen. The culture and creative process of LEVYdance are founded on collaboration, integrity, courage, and excellence. The company places great emphasis on the personal investment and voice of its company artists, whose contributions are largely reflected in the work. The creative process always involves an investigation of self through physical and emotional risk-taking that is playful, intimate, and ultimately transformative.
