“…had the quality of play that often characterizes good or great art” – The New York Times, Nov. 10, 2008, Alastair Macaulay

 

Pigeonwing Dance is a New York-based collective under the direction of choreographer Gabrielle Lamb. Pigeonwing Dance integrates the rigor of classical training into a uniquely contemporary movement language. In Lamb’s choreography, sweeping movement alternates with minute isolation, and bodies combine in fluent, living sculptures. In 2014, Pigeonwing Dance performed new work by Gabrielle Lamb and Adam Barruch at the Garth Newel Music Center; Ailey Citigroup Theater; and for invited audiences at City Center Studios and SUNY Purchase. In addition to numerous commissions for companies across the US and Canada, Lamb began presenting her work independently in 2011 at venues such as Jacob’s Pillow, 92Y, Montreal’s Studio 303, and Brooklyn’s Actor’s Fund Theater. Awards and residencies include the New York City Center’s Choreography Fellowship (2014); and CUNY Dance Initiative Residency at Queens College (2015).
