In the collaborative work of Esmé Boyce Dance, music, sculptural form, image and dance are developed in tandem. While movement is typically the point of origin for a new piece, musical concepts feed back into choreographic decisions, which in turn inform imagery and tone. Almost always interdisciplinary, the group's performances have paired a classical emphasis on rigor and technical accomplishment with a rejection of a purist approach to genre and methodology.
