Company Stefanie Batten Bland

Stefanie Batten Bland, recently named 2014 Joffrey Ballet “Choreographer of Color” recipient, has family roots that are a mix of Creole, African American, Native American and Scots-Irish. She has lived in three countries, speaks four languages and created her dance troupe, Company Stefanie Batten Bland, in 2008 in France so that she might better investigate the human condition and our relationship within the natural world. The troupe has performed live and via dance cinema throughout Europe, Asia, Africa and the States.

Stefanie’s choreographic vision of contemporary dance - a vision recognized as a 2010 Baryshnikov Arts Center/Jerome Robbins NEW Fellow and 2011/12 Cambridge Who’s Who! of Professionals and Entrepreneurs - redefines community by illustrating the synergy that arises when interdisciplinary artists from varied backgrounds and cultures collide. Her works are based in dance, with a strong installation component which allows futuristic worlds to take place in space and time. Stephanie mixes European subtlety and American ardor to investigate physical notions of community, adding her own layer of dance to Mary Batten and Ed Bland’s artistic legacy of music and writing.
