Dylan Crossman grew up under the Mediterranean sun and studied in rainy London before moving to New York where he was lucky enough to work with various choreographers including Peter Kyle, Wally Cardona, and Sean Curran. In 2009 he joined the Merce Cunningham Dance Company and the traveling continued. Dylan now works with Pam Tanowitz, Kim Bartosik, Sally Silvers and Sylvain Emard (Montreal).  Crossman Dans(c)e looks at identity issues in human behaviour and has been seen at DanceRoulette (BKLYN), in Montreal and Montpellier (FR).


Compagnie Kashyl/Choreography By Ashley Chen

Music By Pierre Le Bourgeois

Fri & Sat – 10pm / Sun – 5:30pm

The choreography starts with a simple phrase, and due to the manner of accumulation, attains a high degree of complexity.  The accumulation of the dance score is not systematic; it is constructed in a way that demands increased involvement and attention on the part of the spectator.  The dancer illustrates his tenacity in the repetition of his routines.   With costumes by Kty Garnier.


Ashley Chen trained at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Danse de Paris from 1994 to 1999. He then performed with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company for four years.  In 2004 he joined the Lyon Opera Ballet, where he performed works by William Forsythe, Christian Rizzo, Mathilde Monnier, Russel Maliphant, Ohad Naharin, Trisha Brown, and Philippe Decouflé.
