Post:Ballet was founded in 2009 by Artistic Director and choreographer Robert Dekkers, named “25 to Watch” by DANCE Magazine, with a vision to experiment with eclectic artists, using dance as a medium for creative expression that takes chances, pushes boundaries, and challenges social norms. Dekkers’ and Resident Choreographer Vanessa Thiessen’s collaborative approach to dance making gives all of the artists involved the opportunity to share in the investigation and contribute to the development of a new work, resulting in productions that are “decidedly daring and always beautifully performed” (SF Arts Monthly). Integrating the company’s classically trained dancers with diverse artists including composers, animators, architects, cinematographers, fashion designers, and sculptors, Post:Ballet’s collaborations range from intensely intimate to wildly conceptual. Critical Dance exclaimed that Post:Ballet’s “choreography and artistic collaborations are risky and challenging, yet they still cling to traditional technique in a very unique and genuine way.”
