Artistic Director Peter Cheng has been selected as one of six local San Francisco Bay Area choreographers for ODC Pilot 68's Wild Bodies. The company will premiere a new work in development, Space Speaks.
Emphasizing construction and destruction of phrase work, manipulation, and technical acuity, our choreographic method merges rich contemporary movement alongside the classical ballet form.
Each day begins with a guided warm-up, then dives into original repertory from current and past seasons. Over the course of the weekend, dancers will have the opportunity to collaborate alongside Artistic Director Peter Cheng and company dancers.
Peter & Co. has been invited to present a shared evening of repertoire at the Seattle International Dance Festival's Inter|National Series, including community engagement events the week of June 26th, 2017.
Join the company for our first open studio rehearsal of 2017, delving into the choreographic process from studio to stage, including open dialogue between artists and viewers.
Our second annual series uncovers the intricacies behind "Space Speaks", a new work in development made possible through ODC's Pilot Program 68, premiering at the ODC Dance Commons (Studio B), April 8-9, 2017.
Peter & Co. returns to the American Riviera for two days of festive performances at Nebula Dance Lab's HH11 Dance Festival. The company will re-stage Interstice and Transverse Course, two works originally premiered in 2016.
Peter & Co. is thrilled to be returning to ODC's Take 5! We will present a 5-minute excerpt of a new work-in-progress. Audiences will have the opportunity to provide feedback, insights, pose questions, and grant 15-hours of free studio space towards the future development of the work.
Unfortunately, due to inclement weather Yerba Buena Night has been cancelled.
Peter & Co. announces two premieres during the 9th annual summer performance festival (SPF9) produced by SAFEhouse for the Performing Arts:
- Transverse Course is a study of linear progression and regression, emanating from a predetermined spatial circuitry. A route, a grid, and the along-the-ways to our ultimate destination.
- Interstice is a solo work inferring the possibilities within an improvised movement score, when combined with varying junctures of assignment.

"Now in it’s ninth year, the Salon is a quarterly performing arts showcase. Ten Bay Area artists of various disciplines are offered ten free hours of studio space to play, take risks, explore, and collaborate. Each artist or group shares five minutes of new work at this Saturday evening art extravaganza.
Comfy couches, free snacks, cheap cash bar, and an eclectic line-up make for one of the best performance viewing experiences in town. Stay and shake it at the Salon’s raucous post-showcase party!" - LEVYdance
