B. Dunn Movement was founded by Artistic Director, Brigette Dunn-Korpela in 2015. It was created after the successful debut of the company’s signature work, ECHO, at the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, CA. ECHO was performed with two sold out evenings at the Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance. It was there that B. Dunn Movement began. We knew from that point the value and importance of this work. ECHO was invited to be in residency at the Multicultural Arts Center Cambridge in Summer 2015.
Brigette Dunn-Korpela, with an amazing group of dance artists, visual and technical designers/collaborators took ECHO on tour to Boston, Massachusetts. B. Dunn Movement has since continued to perform, inspire, provoke, reframe, challenge and interrogate normalized notions of hegemony, racism, gender politics and cultural identity.
