In the Garden

In the Garden is where Peter Stathas Dance resides. It is a gathering of dances that is a continuum of his works from his last show, Leaving and Coming Back. It is the life cycle of planting, cultivating and the culmination of their creative practice.

About Peter Stathas

Peter Stathas began his dance career at the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point and transferred to SUNY Purchase. He performed with the Jose Limon Dance Company and worked extensively with Bessie winning choreographer and filmmaker Marta Renzi.

In 2016, he was inspired to return to dance. In 2018 his work was shown at Gibney as part of the choreographic mentorship program DOVA with Doug Varone and Dancers. In summer 2019 he was selected by Danspace Community ACCESS program to perform the evening-length Leaving and Coming Back. February 2020 will be Peter Stathas Dance’s first evening-length performance at Gibney.
