Choreographer Brian Brooks has recently been appointed as the inaugural Choreographer in Residence at Chicago’s Harris Theater for Music and Dance. This innovative three-year fellowship supports several commissions for Brooks each season with the first year featuring Hubbard Street Dance Chicago and Miami City Ballet, as well as his own New York-based group.
The American Dance Institute is commissioning his company's next production, Wilderness, with a NY premiere at The Kitchen in June 2016. Brooks’ new work with former NYC Ballet principal dancer Wendy Whelan, Some of a Thousand Words, also has its world premiere in June at the International Festival of Arts & Ideas.
