Who are The Cambrians?
We are a global dance production and education network based in Chicago. Our continuously expanding collection of artists dance around the world, blending cultural immersion and multi-genre elements to inspiration choreographic innovation.
How do we Work?
At any given time, The Cambrians is developing multiple unique projects. Two Cambrians dancers travel to meet an influential choreographer and work together to create a duet. The performers draw inspiration from the cultural immersion and choreographic process and bring it back with them to Chicago. It is here that the duets created around the world are brought together, remixed, and blended into an evening-length concert.
To learn, teach, laugh, and fall. To get impatient, to find the floor, and grow. We do it day in and day out to show our audience a full developed expression of the human experience through dance. It’s important to us to make dance accessible for those just discovering it, as well as engaging for those who are avid lovers. The heart of our work embraces education as a way for artists to learn and flourish together, while advancing the arts as a whole.
