Inclined Dance Project is an all-female Brooklyn-based contemporary dance company which strives to present visually intricate landscapes inspired and propelled by human experiences. As an all-female dance company Inclined aims to challenge the stereotypical roles of a female dancer by creating works that defy gender and physicality. Derived from a fusion of classic dance vocabulary, pedestrian mannerisms, and contemporary ideas, IDP aims to create work that tests the imagination of audiences. Inclined approaches dance-making through a “set and destroy” method, allowing the performers and collaborating artists the opportunity to deconstruct material and incite dialogue, exploration, and personal contribution to a work. The end result is athletic, technical, and dynamic movement that challenges the dancer and engages audiences.
Inclined Dance Project was founded by Artistic Director Kristen Klein in 2009 and the company has performed at many venues and festivals throughout New York City, New England, and San Francisco including Boston University, The Brooklyn Academy of Music: Fishman Space, the Ailey Citigroup Theater, Baruch College, Dixon Place, Little Boxes Theatre, The Dance Complex, Chen Dance Center, the Center for Performance Research, University Settlement, the Martha Graham Center for Contemporary Dance, Greenspace, The Actors Fund Arts Center, Triskelion Arts, RAW Artists, the Totts Gap Arts Institute, and the International Festival of Arts and Ideas, among many others. The company is a fiscally sponsored project of Fractured Atlas and has been featured in Dance Spirit Magazine, The Huffington Post, Critical Dance Magazine, DiY Dancer, FitEngine Reviews, offoffoff Dance, and on Dancemedia.com.
