Compañía Sharon Fridman
About Compañía Sharon Fridman
Madrid-based Compañía Sharon Fridman makes its U.S. debut, with athletic, adventurous work rooted in contact improvisation.
In a versatile program where “even the smallest movement speaks volumes” (The Coast), Compañía Sharon Fridman performs Hasta Dónde..? and Free fall. The first is a duet that has been performed over 300 times around the world and explores dependency, struggle, and harmony, while the second was awarded a highly respected Max Award for the Performing Arts and rehearses and engages with community volunteers, who become an integral part of the production.
Part of a new generation of groundbreaking Israeli choreographers, Sharon Fridman’s performance credits include Tadmor Dance Company, Vertigo Dance Company, and Kibbutz Contemporary Dance Company.

On July 9, 1942, the Ted Shawn Theatre, the first theatre in the United States designed specifically for dance, opened its doors. Architect Joseph Franz, who also built The Music Shed at Tanglewood, had agreed with Shawn that the theatre exterior must harmonize with the existing farmhouse and barns.
