Now a Company-in-Residence at Connecticut College, David Dorfman Dance was founded in 1985. Dorfman is a native Chicagoan who studied with Daniel Nagrin and toured with the companies of Kei Takei and Susan Marshall. His work was first seen at the Pillow in 1990, and he has served on the Pillow’s faculty and engaged in choreographic residencies onsite. His most recent Pillow performances featured Prophets of Funk, inspired by seeing The Family Stone live. In the 1997 Pillow season, he presented Out of Season (The Athletes Project), working with local athletes from a variety of sports (including former New York Yankees pitcher Jim Bouton) to develop the movement.
