BECKY RADWAY DANCE PROJECTS (BRDP) is a New York City based modern dance company founded in 2002 to create innovative movement and powerful imagery through original dance works. The company presents vibrant performances with a goal to establish unique environments with each new production that deliver an overall visceral and aesthetic experience.
Artistic Director Becky Radway’s rich choreography, described as “quirky and enjoyable” by The Dance Enthusiast and “profoundly interesting” by iDanz Critix Corner, delights audiences with quick, detailed phrases, intimate partnering, and engaging themes. Throughout the years, the company has collaborated with Philadelphia-based composer, Scott Radway, on a number of celebrated original scores, and with NYC-based designers, Elisabeth Svenningsen and Paul Olmer, on beautifully intricate set elements.
Featuring a group of dynamic performers, the company has presented a wide range of inventive short-form and evening-length works, featuring theater and film elements alongside developed and thoughtful choreography. BRDP has performed at festivals and venues including Food For Thought (Danspace Project), Triskelion Arts Presents, Fridays at Noon (92nd Street Y), GAP’s First Look Series (the Green Building), the DUMBO and Cool New York Festivals, The Kitchen, Alvin Ailey’s Citigroup Theater, Henry Street Settlement, the Connelly Theater, the Merce Cunningham Studio, Pushing Progress (Peridance Capezio Center), Fertile Ground (Green Space), and University Settlement in NYC; the Jack Guidone Theater in Washington, D.C.; the Grace Street Theater in Richmond, VA; Towson University and Goucher College in Baltimore, MD; and has created site-specific works for NYC parks through the Uptown Arts Stroll, as well as at the Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, NJ.
BRDP has received grant support from the Brooklyn Arts Council, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance, and the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, as well as creative support from the Emerging Artist Residency program at The Field, and space grants from the 92nd Street Y Harkness Dance Center and Triskelion Arts’ Space Subsidy Program through the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
As a guest artist, Radway is available for master classes and choreographic residencies, and has taught and set new work in the past on MiXt Co. (Greenwich, CT), DragonFly Dance Experiment (Annapolis, MD), Lock Haven University (Lock Haven, PA), Evolve Dance (Tarrytown, NY), Greenwich Academy (Greenwich, CT), Arundel High School (Anne Arundel, MD), and Oldfields School (Gambrillis, MD). Radway is currently collaborating on a trio of dance-horror films as part of fat pigeon alongside Carlton Cyrus Ward (Third Rail Projects and Phantom Limb) and Joel Marsh Garland (Orange is the New Black). Their first installment, 219 Gates, was released in late 2013 and received a Claw Award for Best Editing at the 2014 Terror Film Festival and will be screened as part of the 2016 Philadelphia Screendance Festival this February.
As a performer, Radway has had the pleasure of working professionally with the Kevin Wynn Collection, Heidi Latsky Dance, Ezra Caldwell, Incidents Physical Theater, MariaColacoDance, and Leanne Schmidt and Company. She holds a BA in Dance Performance and Choreography from Goucher College in Baltimore, MD, and has worked primarily in arts administration since 2002. Radway was a finalist for the Arts Management Fellowship program at The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C., and is currently the Operations Manager at Triskelion Arts in Brooklyn, NY.
