FIERCE. STARK. BEAUTIFUL.
Vanity Fair dubbed her “the punk ballerina.” She danced for ballet genius George Balanchine and modern maverick Merce Cunningham, choreographed for filmmakers Merchant and Ivory, and made music videos for Michael Jackson and Madonna. Now after 15 years of working throughout Europe, Karole Armitage is back in the States with her own new company, creating contemporary dance with a classical heartbeat—fierce, pure, stark and beautiful.
“She is always pushing the limits of possibility...Dance that explodes in every sense, dazzles the eye and remained vividly imprinted in your memory.” – Nouvelle Observateur
