The Wendy Osserman Dance Company relishes the strangeness of being alive. The choreography explores the many sides of our personalities and relationships. Osserman conveys her struggle to comprehend current events with humor and drama, fusing the personal with the political.
The choreography has been called "blessedly nonliteral" (Jennifer Dunning, THE NEW YORK TIMES, 1/29/02),
"Comic...scary...The suite as a whole effectively evoked the mood of our time." (Jack Anderson, THE NEW YORK TIMES, 2/22/03).
The performers collaborate in a process that includes writing and improvisation. WODC has created seven evening length works since ‘98.
WODC has performed regularly in NYC at venues such as the Kitchen, DTW, Dixon Place, St. Mark's Church, Theater For A New City and Joyce SoHo. It has also appeared at Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors and The New York Dance Festival. Since 2006, the Company has been in residence at The Chelsea Art Museum/Home of the Miotte Foundation, where it performs site specific scores.
WODC has toured nationally and internationally, performing and teaching in colleges, schools, parks, and theaters.
Recent performances have been presented by TNC, Joyce Soho, Friends of Hudson River Park, Dancenow/NYC/TheFestival, and Dancenow/NYC/DancemOpolitan at Joe’s Pub, and The Theatre Within Workshop.
