Scott Wells and Dancers
SantaCruzDance.com presents an Evening of Dance with Scott Wells.
Scott Wells is a critically acclaimed and award-winning choreographer. He directs the San Francisco based company Scott Wells & Dancers. His work is highly physical, often humorous and always with substantial consideration for the craft and formalism of choreography. In the last ten years Wells has created 14 evening-length programs. He tours to Europe each year to teach and perform and is a frequent collaborator with dance artists in the Bay Area and abroad. While earning his MFA at the University of Illinois, Scott received two significant awards: the Martha Hill Award for choreography from the American Dance Festival and the Emerging Choreographer's Commission from the Bates Dance Festival in Maine.
Wells moved to San Francisco with four dancers and started to present work in 1992. The Bay Area audiences and critics enthusiastically welcomed the new company:"Wells control of the viewer's eye is masterly beyond his years...Scott Wells is a choreographer to watch." OAKLAND TRIBUNE "The Summertime Dance Project at Theater Artaud is coming up with winners. Wells's choreography is so highly physical and athletic you'd think his company of six dancers could keep an orthopedic surgeon in business.....Wells' choreography gave every evidence that we will be hearing a lot more from this intelligent artist." SF CHRONICLE., "Wells has hair split timing and hair raising results. He has been in the Bay Area for barely a year, but judging from the crowd at Theater Artaud, word has gotten around. Scott Wells is a fresh voice and one to be watched" SF BAY GUARDIAN.
