“The most exciting choreographer of his generation."
"Chase Brock’s eclectic résumé includes Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark on Broadway, Roméo et Juliette at the Met, and “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.” He is a showman with an eye to a wide audience, and the work he has created for his own company reflects his sentimental storytelling bent."
“The ballet, which began almost frivolously, turns into a genuinely moving work, with a powerful point of view, an expression of potential terrestrial disaster. Who’d have thought such a naively playful beginning could become so profound?”

The Chase Brock Experience, the Brooklyn-based contemporary dance company now in its 10th season, is thrilled to announce that the company will celebrate its first decade with a two-week engagement November 27 – December 9, at Theatre Row’s Clurman Theatre (located at 412 W 42nd Street). All tickets are $29.00 and can be purchased on-line at Telecharge.com, by phone at 212-239-6200 or at the Theatre Row Box Office. A special student rate of $19.00 is available at the box office with a valid student ID.
To further commemorate the occasion, the December 1st performance will serve as CBE’s 10th Anniversary Gala, featuring a post-performance reception and honoring longtime CBE supporters and friends of the company, Mary Jo and Ted Shen.
For its 10th Anniversary, CBE will present a mixed bill program featuring revivals of audience favorites. The earliest work on the program is Mr. Brock’s 2007 creation Slow Float. Performed on the opening night of the company’s debut season and set to a five-song folk-rock suite by Laura Nyro, Slow Float is a lyrical and jangly Bohemian frolic. From 2009 the company will perform Curious Episode, a duet for women that playfully mirrors a piano and flute score by Claude Bolling. The company will perform The Song That I Sing; Or, Meow So Pretty (2014), a democratic dance mashup of tap dance, step dance, flatfooting, finger tutting, jumpstyle and jazz set to the songs of famed folk revival group The New Christy Minstrels and commissioned by La MaMa Moves!, and will give the New York premiere of the colorful Splendor we only partially imagined (2015), a zen yet kinetic work to songs by Kishi Bashi, commissioned by Dancers Responding to AIDS for their Hudson Valley Dance Festival.
Finally, the evening will be rounded out with the world premiere of Mr. Brock’s 30th CBE creation, Men I’ve Known. Created in residence at Catskill Mountain Foundation this past May, this elegiac new work features the oldest and newest men of the company in a striking movement poem set to Erik Satie’s Ogives, four piano pieces from the late 1880s.
Performances of The Chase Brock Experience will be Monday through Saturday, November 27 – December 9, at 8:00pm at Theatre Row’s Clurman Theatre (located at 412 W 42nd Street). Tickets start as low as $29.00 and can be purchased on-line at Telecharge.com, by phone at 212-239-6200 or at the Theatre Row Box Office.

The following works will be presented:
Splendor We only partially Imagined premiered in 2015. Broadwayworld.com describe it as “a zen, highly kinetic and colorful piece that shifted from a slower romantic pace to energetic tribal rhythms while finding joy and delight in every movement.”
Mission Implausible, which is “set to a witty score by Joshua Rosenblum, suddenly displays Mr. Brock’s talent for stylized showbiz mayhem.” – The New York Times
The Song That I Sing; or, Meow So Pretty is a rippling dance to the songs of The New Christy Minstrels. Equal parts Blue Ridge and Brooklyn, this restless, sexy, strummy work employs a dance mash-up of tap, finger-tutting, clogging, hip-hop, square dance, step dance, jumpstyle and jazz.
