Jones, Stephen Petronio Dance Company, Donald Byrd, Twyla Tharp, Toronto Dance Theater, Frankfurt Ballet, Doug Varone & Dancers and the Paul Taylor Dance Company.
Exceptional! It has form and an almost unbearable sense of tactile sensuality.
–The New York Post
Violent and loving a high voltage maelstrom of movement.
–The Village Voice
Since 1983, when the Kevin Wynn Collection performed its first of many self-produced concerts in and around the New York area, response to the performances from critics and the public has been unreservedly enthusiastic.The New York Beacon described one performance: like a meteor shower it was spectacular, beautiful, and potentially dangerous. The reputation and virtuosity of the company has grown from year to year, as each concert has built on the success and acclaim of those before.
This world provides a parallel for us to explore new emotions and insights, transforming the physicality of our inner and outer landscapes. – Kevin Wynn
The company's work has been performed internationally in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Holland, and throughout Europe, with audiences applauding dancers and complex choreography. Opportunities for the Collection to perform have grown exceptionally in the past few years, highlighted by two appearances in the Altogether Different Series at the Joyce Theater in New York City.
The energy of Mr. Wynn's dancers could have raised the roof Mr. Wynn's choreography packs a wallop. –The New York Times
Kevin and the Collection are very grateful for the aid and assistance the company has received over the years form the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council of the Arts, S.U.N.Y. Purchase and the Alvin Ailey American Dance Center.
