Sarah Council Dance Projects (SCDP) was formed by choreographer Sarah Council as a platform for choreographic investigation and the creation of new works. These works emerge from a collection of personal experiences, research and observations. They are shaped by extended periods of exploration that give rise to an intimacy between the dancers that is deeply felt by audiences.
Council’s choreography has been described as “uncommonly honest and expressive” by The Washington Post. Council’s movement plays with momentum, dynamic contrast and breath while maintaining a physical and emotional clarity that is detailed and precise. Her choreography is grounded in a visceral theatricality, producing dances that are thought provoking and emotionally transporting. Her works range from intimate observations of daily life and relationships to wider focused explorations of pressing social justice issues.
