Sheep Meadow Dance Theatre was founded in 2016 by Billy Blanken as a launchpad for exploring movement. The project creates works of dance and physical theatre. Repertoire ranges from the Avant-Guard to Classical Ballet. With his exposure to wide range of movement in his career, his experience provides an access point to creating classical works with a uniquely modern aesthetic. Billy is interested in the ways we relate to our bodies, selves, and the rituals of Performance. As a collective, we look how media influences perceptions of ourselves or each other. We desire to remain open minded and fearlessly true, while pushing the boundaries of performance and providing arts for all.
