REPERTOIRE

TAKE

NICK PUPILLO

"A study in the darkness and luminosity inherent in human interaction, and a glorious showcase of the sheer physical beauty and sublime technique of this company of 13 extraordinarily magnetic contemporary dancers, “Take” is nothing short of spellbinding."

THE DREAM

NICK PUPILLO

"True to its name, Visceral Dance's adaptation delivers the story's essence in a living, breathing reality the audience can experience on a truly visceral level"

SOFT SPOKEN

NICK PUPILLO

"....there is a mature fluidity coupled with an explicit willingness to push the envelope of modern ballet, exciting and evolutionary."

PICK A CHAIR

DANIELLE AGAMI

".....fearless, teetering even on the edge of reckless abandon."

A FINE LINE

KEVIN O'DAY

"These fine performance artists, dressed in shapely black and blue garments by Moriah Turner, created surreal shapes, entwined and leaping, like spectres from another dimension, defined by the sound."

SYNAPSE

NICK PUPILLO

"Synapse created one of the most exhilarating artistic displays I have ever witnessed upon a Chicago stage, and the gasps and commentary of other audience members during the performance proved that fact."

MINOR THREAT

MARK GODDEN

"Minor Threat" is a balletic, technically demanding work. It requires nothing short of perfection...."

ATLAS

NICK PUPILLO

"...a demonstration of imagination transformed by athletic prowess"

VITAL

NICK PUPILLO

"Breathtaking lifts brought whoops from the audience, as the dance built to its inspired ending, catching us off-guard in a daring group plunge."

RUFF CELTS

MARGUERITE DONLON

"dark-humored, dynamic"

SHE THREE

NICK PUPILLO

"their torsos rising and twisting in a repeated phrase: mermaids out of their element, fallen angels"

BATE

FERNANDO MELO

"...wonderfully surreal and comical look at the love-struck male of the species"

SUM NOIR

NICK PUPILLO

"Innovatively designed on two levels and set to a stirring, eclectic mix of music, "Sum Noir" is packed with striking images, with moments when the heart stops and the hair rises."

HADAL ZONE

BRIAN ENOS

"...the cold, sumptuous drift of the piece quickly shifts into something more human as duets develop and one isolated, Kafka-esque dancer confronts the inexorable force of an inexplicable crowd. Building to a mysterious but unmistakable climax driven by Joby Talbot's music, "Hadal Zone" runs thrillingly hot and cold."

DUET MABUL

OHAD NAHARIN

"every facet erotic as the man approaches the woman over and over, his palms joined and vibrating in a motion like dowsing, while the hyper-alert, retreating woman somehow never quite evades his lunges. The clockwork side of "Mabul" gives it a slight comic edge, while Vivaldi's devotional music provides a rich, dark undertone."

CHANGES

MÓNICA CERVANTES

"Cervantes’ unparalleled sensibility for authentic, human moments is intermingled with brilliantly constructed movement phrases."

COOL LOVE

HARRISON MCELDOWNEY

"an almost magically assembled piece that spun off pre-show video interviews of audience members riffing on love, loss and the joy of dance."

SOUVENIR

BANNING BOULDIN

"it leaves a mischievous smirk that resonates well past its fade to black... I dare say like a souvenir." 

MY REALM

NICK PUPILLO

"Miller's almost violent playing is the perfect match for Pupillo's impassioned choreography."

GLINT

ROBYN MINEKO WILLIAMS

"is comprised of five dancers in Williams’ now-signature blend of rigorous composition, idiosyncratic gesture and complex rhythmic structures."

IMPETERE

NICK PUPILLO

"And in artistic director/choreographer Nick Pupillo’s virtuosic piece, “Impetere,” set to an intriguing score by Apparat, Olafur Arnalds, Matmos and Pixel, they suggested a tribe of avatars with their sensuality, fearlessness and intensity."

LANDINGS, CHASMS

SIDRA BELL

"explores human relationships and intimacy through movement, within a stage environment stripped bare and transformed by lighting designer Brian Sidney Bembridge. "

SENZA DI TE

NICK PUPILLO

"....combines sensual with powerful, seamless with athletic "
