His presence radiates wisdom and knowledge embedded somatically, energetically and intellectually.
A force to be reckoned with, his works are performed nationally and internationally to audiences without compromise.
“ … highlight of the program” The New York Times.
“Austrian-born dancer and choreographer, Robert Sher-Machherndl, is everything an artist should be: a fiercely creative, self-confident individual who exploits familiar forms for his own devices. A visionary who forces us to look at the human body in strangely appealing new ways, and a dancer who makes the rigorous and punishing seem at once effortless and alien.” Dance Person of the Year | Denver Post
