Elisa Monte Dance Company

Lisa Peluso

Elisa Monte Dance Co attracts renowned cross-discipline artists’ attention, support, and collaboration on a wide range of projects. The company’s repertoire features works completed in partnership with composers David Van Tieghem, Glenn Branca, Richard Peaslee, architects Tod Williams, Billie Tsien, photographer Roy Volkmann, and lighting designer Clifton Taylor.

The late Alvin Ailey championed Monte’s work from its beginnings. He brought her first choreographic work, Treading, into his company’s repertoire and also commissioned Pigs & Fishes. The two companies have maintained a strong link ever since. Judith Jamison’s support of Elisa Monte Dance Co has extended that tradition with the commission of Mneumonic Verse.
