Nico Brown is a dance artist originally from rural Illinois. His work is often described as minimal, formal, and irrevocably queer. Brown’s dances have been presented at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival Inside/Out, New York Live Arts, La Mama Experimental Theater, Gibney Dance Center, and Brooklyn Arts Exchange. He recently presented a solo in collaboration with music artist Fischerspooner during a sold-out concert at Brooklyn Steel. Sometimes he performs for other choreographers, including Jon Kinzel, Jennifer Monson, Cat Galasso, Renée Wadleigh, and Wally Cardona + Jennifer Lacey. Brown holds an MFA in Dance and a BFA in Theatre Stage Management, both from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
