Althea Dance Company
Althea Dance Company is a contemporary dance company created in New York by Théa Bautista in 2018 and established in France in the Val-de-Marne since 2020.
Althea Dance’s work is a blend of contemporary flow and seamless movement, yet very physical, which mixes floor work with the lines and extensions of the dancers.
Althea Dance focuses on international collaboration with artists from different fields such as writers, musicians, painters or visuals artists. The company enjoys presenting its work in surprising and unexpected places, like warehouses, artist studios, art galleries or outdoor spaces. The company explores new ways of sharing dance with its audience and approach a public sometimes less well-acquainted with contemporary dance.
So far, Althea Dance Company has performed at important venues and theaters internationally such as Alvin Ailey Theater, Dumbo Dance Festival, White Wave dance festival, KoDaFe dance festival, Salvatore Capezio Theater, Triskellion Arts, The Center for Performance Research in New York and at Danse Lourdes Festival, Blois Danse Festival and at the Fondation des États-Unis in Paris.
The company has developed strong partnerships with several institutions such as Prelude Project in New York for the collaborative project “From the Temple” choreographed for the visual artists Pinar&Viola and with the Fondation des États-Unis in Paris where the company has been in residency since 2018.
To date, Althea Dance Company has presented its work internationally in different parts of the world, mainly in the US, France and Mexico, and is aiming to continue expanding its multi-cultural artistic vision throughout the world.
