Welcome! Hilary Bryan Dance Theater has evolved from Frank and Bryan Dance (FAB Dance), also known as Frank and Bryan Worldwide Movers, originally formed in 1996 by Hilary Bryan and Dawn Frank. Hilary Bryan Dance Theater creates interdisciplinary work incorporating postmodern dance, theater, music, and interactive set design – performance that communicates viscerally. “Our goals are to make sense of the pit of the stomach; dive into what frightens us most; rest with the unknown; and find patterns weaving through the chaos of our lives. We explore the collisions of different points of view. Our choreographic trademarks are honesty and subtle, poignant representation of human interaction.”
The company’s work has been performed internationally in Russia, New Zealand, Taiwan, and Italy; and domestically in Maine, Massachusetts, New York, and throughout California. FAB Dance had its New York debut at Context Theater in 1998 and returned there in 1999 with Unearthed. Rita Felciano showcased the San Francisco performance of Unearthed as the most exciting and unusual local dance of January 2000, an event that “whetted (her) appetite for dance.” (SF Bay Guardian). Felciano also described FAB Dance’s first production, Inner Limits / Outer Bounds, as “poignant” and “unpretentious” (Critics Choice, SF Bay Guardian). Wellington, New Zealand’s Dominion lauded their work as “satisfying texturally,” and praised their “strong technique and acting skills.
