I am S0 ecstatic that Jennifer Muller is celebrating the 28 yr. annniversary of her company. Her work has always been amongst the most stunning, sexy work in the modern genre. In the mode of Louis Falco, whom Ms. Muller also danced with, Muller's company has always been known as a "dancer's company". Such legendary dancers as Angie Wolf, Christopher Pilafian (I thought of them as the "dynamic duo" as there was nothing they couldn't do, including defy gravity; they were just FEARLESS and gorgeous movers)and the now-famous choreographer Ron Brown danced in Muller's company. Trained at Juilliard and known as a Limon dancer, Jennifer Muller has always had a stellar reputation. The company has toured both here and abroad. I think my favorite piece of hers was called "Lovers", and featured 4 or five consecutive duets. It was based on, or rather inspired by, the painting of Gustave Klimt.

Trina,
Jennifer Muller/The Works is my favorite East Coast company. I too find her work very sexy yet never offensive---like one or two choregraphers I have often found vulgar while trying to be sexy. I became a fan after a Morristown, NJ, "First Night", and have since tried to catch every Jersey and Joyce performance. Once I retire I would love to volunteer in either promotion or fund raising for her company.

Wroginski, thanks so much for the response! I wasn't aware that the company did seasons at the Joyce; I didn't think they were that active in the New York area; I was under the impression that they toured quite a bit abroad! What kind of rep are they doing these days? Can you mention any favorites of yours? :D

Brava!! Ms. Muller appears to have remained a romantic, in the distinctly "un-romantic" world of modern/contemporary dance. Long may she wave!! :D
