Monica Bill Barnes


Welcomed by SDSCPA Dance Dept. Chair Annette Barcelona and Dance Faculty Jessica Curiel, is Monica Bill Barnes, a choreographer, performer, and the Artistic Director of Monica Bill Barnes & Company. Barnes founded MBB&CO in 1997 with a collection of solos that could be performed anywhere. In 2013, MBB&CO began working with Creative Producing Director, Robbie Saenz de Viteri, and together gave itself the challenge to “bring dance where it doesn't belong” and has been striving to follow this self-imposed motto ever since. The company has performed in venues ranging from Upright Citizen's Brigade to The Sydney Opera House, and has been presented in more than 100 cities throughout the US and internationally.

Barnes has worked in theater, created over 30 different works with college students in dance departments throughout the country, and was the choreographer for Greta Gerwig’s movie, Little Women. She has been awarded the Chita Rivera Award for Performance and in 2018, the company won the Lily Award. Some of the company’s past projects include The Museum Workout, a guided exercise tour of The Metropolitan Museum of Art made in collaboration with the author/artist Maira Kalman, Happy Hour, an immersive office party dance show that ran as a recurring sold-out event for 3 years in New York City, Three Acts, Two Dancers, One Radio Host, a show that combines radio and dance in collaboration with Ira Glass that toured over 25 cities in America and abroad. Current collaborations between Barnes and Robbie Saenz de Viteri include The Running Show, Days Go By and Keep Moving, the company’s first online show created in collaboration with 16 dancers from Hunter College in 2020. Within each of these new contexts and borrowed environments, the company’s work constantly finds humor in our awkward, everyday triumphs and failures.

This event was made possible by Friends of SCPA, a charitable organization, and its donors. There is no charge for this event.
