Gibney Company, led by Artistic Director Gina Gibney and Director Gilbert T Small II, commissions and performs works by renowned and rising international choreographers who are committed to exploring connections between the rigorous physicality of contemporary dance alongside responsive, humanistic storytelling. Presenting a broad range of aesthetics and techniques, Gibney Company has an unrelenting focus on artistic excellence and social integrity.
In January 2020, Gibney received a generous lead gift to support the transformation of its professional dance company. In the 2020–21 season, the company doubled in size and made its debut at The Joyce Theater. The company recently performed as part of New York City Center’s Fall for Dance Festival in 2022 and is in the midst of its first national tour to nine cities across the country. Since its expansion, the company has commissioned eight new works from a wide range of choreographers, including Rena Butler, Gustavo Ramirez Sansano, Sonya Tayeh, and Yue Yin, and performed acclaimed repertory Johan Inger and Ohad Naharin.
