About the Dance Companies

Get to know the companies performing in New Victory Dance: Program A.

Jerron Herman

Jerron Herman is a dancer and writer who is compelled to create images of freedom. His process is supported by personal histories and social legacies of disability aesthetics that undermine notions of production in favor of welcoming. The nuanced pieces Jerron exhibits contend with an early childhood desire to create many worlds for others to inhabit.

Calpulli Mexican Dance Company

Calpulli Mexican Dance Company’s repertoire is a carnival of folkloric traditions and original creations both choreographic and musical, developed since 2003. Calpulli tells stories entirely through dance, music, elaborate and colorful costuming, and the passion of their performers. Stories were conceived and created by co-founders Alberto Lopez Herrera, former Artistic Director, and Juan Castaño, Executive Director, and are told through the artistic vision of Artistic Director Grisel Pren Monje.

A.I.M by Kyle Abraham

The mission of A.I.M by Kyle Abraham is to create a body of dance-based work that is galvanized by Black culture and history and features the rich tapestry of Black and queer stories. The work, informed by and made in conjunction with artists across a range of disciplines, entwines a sensual and provocative vocabulary with a strong emphasis on music, text, video and visual art. While grounded in choreographer Kyle Abraham’s artistic vision, A.I.M draws inspiration from a multitude of sources and movement styles.
