The Christopher Watson Dance Company
"There's a quiet rhythm to the group dancing. Repeating choreographic phrases pulse, swirl, arc and reach with a seamless continuity."
Camille LeFevre, Minneapolis Star Tribune

CWDC December 2012 newsletter (pdf)

Christopher Watson’s choreography has been variously described as buoyant, lyrical and dramatic. “The foundation of my work is what might be termed ‘classical modern dance’ in the tradition of Merce Cunningham, Paul Taylor and Jose Limon. Working collaboratively with the dancers, I deconstruct the form, adding idiosynchratic nuances that are often the result of improvisation. This way the work remains alive and deeply personal.”

Christopher’s work has been supported by grants from the Michigan Council for the Arts, the New York Program of the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission, the Jerome Foundation through the SpaceSpace Co-Project, the Linden Hills UCC Fund, the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, the Lyndale Neighborhood Association, the Minneapolis Arts Commission, an appropriation by the Minnesota Legislature, as well as funding from the St. Paul Companies, the Minnesota Dance Alliance, Mervyn’s, the McKnight Foundation and numerous individual contributions. In 1997 he received a 3M Award for Innovation in the Arts.
