Article in the NY Times By Jack Anderson:

I met Brendan in Tallinn last weekend, where he is teaching at Fine Five Theatre, the leading dance school in Estonia. Some detailsof his background are given below and I hope we can cover more about his approach or performances.


Brendan McCall is a movement artist whose work has been presented throughout
the United States, Asia, Europe, and the Russian Federation. In the past
year, his work has taken him to New York, California, Maine, Vermont,
Connecticut, New Jersey, Alaska, Russia, Sweden, Norway, and Estonia. He has
danced for Wendell Beavers, Alexandra Beller, Maureen Fleming, David Gordon,
Sin Cha Hong, Stephen Petronio, and Aki Sato; collaborated with Paul Langland,
Mary Overlie, Keith Thompson, Sabina Vajraca (Bosnia), and Stephen Wisker (UK)
; and acted for Moises Kaufman (Venezuela) and Rebecca Holderness. He co-
founded MAP Intermedia Performance in 2003 with NB Aldrich and Zach Poff.

Mr. McCall has taught internationally since 1994, and is one of four teacher-
practitioners of Allan Wayne Work. Teaching appointments include: New York
University (1996-2001, 2004), Atlantic Theater Company (1997, 2004), American
Academy of Dramatic Arts (2000-02), Bennington College (2002-03),
Balettakademien (2002-03) and Danshogskolan (2004-05). He has been on the
faculty of the Yale School of Drama, the first new hire in the Movement
division since 1971.

by JENNIFER DUNNING for the New York Times

This was an evening of dance that lived up to the promise of its title, “Without Pretense.”
