Sheep Meadow Dance Theatre/ Billy Blanken

 

Sheep Meadow Dance Theatre was created in 2016 by Billy Blanken as a launchpad for exploring performance. The project aims to create works of dance and physical theatre. Repertoire ranges from the Avant-Guard to Classical Ballet to reflect the human condition at it’s core. Sheep Meadow Dance Theatre is a collective of Artists- Dancers, Actors, Filmmakers, Designers, Writers, Thinkers, and Advocates who use their talent, creativity, voices and training to create works that are radical, innovative, opinionated, boundless and refined. We strive to create works that give back to the community and bring arts to all.

With a strong classical dance background and eclectic aesthetic, Billy desires to create movement based works with the human experience at the core. He is interested in the ways we relate to our bodies, selves and the rituals of Performance. As a collective, we do not look to convention for the sake of gimmick, but in the ways our relations with media change our perceptions of ourselves or each other. We desire to remain open minded and fearlessly true, while pushing the boundaries of performance.
