KIEGWIN + COMPANY: This Time, it’s the Men Who #ShareTheMattress….
Matt Baker, Kile Hotchkiss and Brandon Cournay (in photo l.-r.) show off their athleticism, humor and skivvies as they leap, dance, flip and engage in a “brief” pillow fight.
Directed by acclaimed choreographer Larry Keigwin, the video celebrates KEIGWIN + COMPANY’s 10th anniversary and the inspiration for its first smash hit, 2003’s “Mattress Suite.” Videos with dance, music and other arts luminaries will roll out through October on the company’s website. Viewers are encouraged to share their own videos on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or YouTube with the hashtag #ShareTheMattress.
Keigwin created “Mattress Suite” in 2003 after watching dancer Nicole Wolcott jump playfully on her bed. The pair developed choreography inspired by Wolcott’s moves and set it to popular songs and classical music. The piece was a hit with critics and audiences. “Mattress Suite” (along with Matt, Kile and Brandon) will be featured during the run. Tickets are available here.
KEIGWIN + COMPANY’s 10th Anniversary season runs October 29-November 3, 2013 at The Joyce Theater in New York City.
