The Sokolow Theatre/Dance Ensemble was founded in 2004 to be the artistic repository of Anna Sokolow’s repertory. The company’s mission is to reconstruct and perform the Sokolow repertory, teach and coach her repertory on other professional companies, and make her works accessible for students ranging from middle school to college and pre-professional. The company also encourages contemporary choreographers interested in dance theater, through projects allowing them to choreograph on experienced Sokolow dancers. The multi-generational makeup of the company dancers, ranging in age from 25 through over 60, is unusually inclusive for a dance company, enhancing Ms. Sokolow’s dances, which explore the depths of the human experience. Since 2004, the ensemble has reconstructed and performed over 20 of Ms. Sokolow’s works. Several have been restaged from archival footage and original cast memory in order to recreate and preserve the legacy.
