About the Company

Jennifer Muller/The Works was founded in 1974 to support the vision and creativity of Jennifer Muller, creating new work and reaching the widest audience possible by performing and touring the Muller repertory in NYC, the US and abroad. The Works is deeply committed to mentoring creativity in all forms, teaching professionally-oriented students, conducting arts awareness and community outreach programs for adults and youth of all ages, and advocating relevance and appreciation of dance to promote the validity of individual expression and cross-cultural understanding.

The Works is celebrating its 38th year of presenting the unique spirit of its performances to world audiences, educating youth and serving the community with vital outreach. Muller creates exhilarating dances that are evocative, inspirational, passionate and engaging.. The Works applies a multi-disciplinary technique that weaves dance, theater and visual arts to create dances that celebrate and illuminate the human spirit.

The Works is proud to be America’s Ambassadors of Contemporary Dance, having presented its artistry in the world’s preeminent theaters and festivals in 39 countries on four continents. The Works has performed at major theaters and festivals worldwide, from Buenos Aires to Toronto and Hong Kong to Moscow with appearances in Paris, Rio de Janeiro, Shanghai, Tel Aviv, Montreal, Rome and Amsterdam, to name a few.. The Works recently performed to rave reviews at Brazil’s FENDAFOR 10 (Festival Internacional de Dança de Fortaleza), The Sixth Beijing International Theater & Dance Festival, Bangkok’s Eighth International Festival of Dance and Music and Festival Internacional de Teatro Santa Cruz de la Sierra in Bolivia.

The Works has performed in 30 states in the US, and self-produced 22 New York City Seasons in such venues as New York City Center, The Joyce, Cedar Lake, Jerome Robbins and New Victory Theaters. In the US, The Works has performed at the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center, Jacob's Pillow and American Dance Festival.

Koch Theater, Central Park Summerstage, Ailey Citigroup Theater, Guild Hall, Chelsea Art Museum, Bryant Park Festival, Jacob Javits Center, Dutesco Gallery, Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, Fire Island Dance Festival and the United Nations.

The dancers of The Works are renowned both for their technical virtuosity and expressive capability. Ms. Muller draws energy, athleticism, passion and grace out of her company members in a process that reveals each performer as a distinct individual without compromising the integrity of a coherent ensemble.

The Works is devoted to mentoring creativity in all its forms, through teaching professionally-oriented students, mentoring choreographers and conducting arts-in-education programs for all ages, cultures and backgrounds.
