We respectfully ask for your tax deductible financial assistance to help with the flow in our actions.  Chris Ferris & Dancers presents dance that is brought to you with the vibrancy of unique and quirky action weaving an event that puts you squarely into the present tense.  There is nothing like live performance.  Be with us through our leaps, falls, bounces, and slices.  We offer sweat, heavy breathing, and an eyeful of action that gets you dancing within yourself.  We offer live original music made specifically with each dance.


Chris Ferris & Dancers aims to contribute to the culture of dance by creating an acute awareness of movement and its many possibilities so that you can view your everyday life from another dimension.  Movement is a large communicator.  We have been speaking this language of limbs, torso, mind, heart, and soul in New York City for over 28 years.  Be a part of this tradition by making it possible for us to pay artists and meet the costs of theater rental, rehearsal space, technical staff, and publicity.

Chris Ferris & Dancers is developing a new work, that is still a bit of a secret, for dancers and musicians.  I can tell you more about this very soon. There is also a new solo in the works for Chris.

Individual dances will be presented in showcases from Rampaging Light suite plus, our newest work If This Were Not RealRampaging Light, is dance existing in parallel worlds; framed in time shattered between reality and dreams; and the magical mishaps that you thought didn’t happen but did.  You are held and released by the silent step, soundless wind, screaming train, and buzzing wall of voices.  This is performance that will alter your perception of a single room and the flipping numbers on your clock.  Sometimes everything does not have to make sense.  If This Was Not Real reaches out into the edges of finger tips and periphery of room.  Space is marked, boundaries are created and the dancer as a single unit appears.  This dance reflects alienation as a result of living in a time of hyper-connectivity.  Ferris’ choreography is based on an exploration of movement from a sculptural, dynamic, and emotional point of view.  Its focus is to bring you design in space with a human element.
