(311) Stefanie Batten Bland, Founder of Company SBB, on ‘Embarqued: Stories of Soil’ at BAM

Posted by on 10.24.2022

Today we are joined by global artist, Stefanie Batten Bland, founder of Company SBB. Child of a jazz composer/producer father and writer mother, and raised in Soho, Stefanie was clearly destined for a future in the arts. She situates her work at the intersection of dance-theatre, film, and installation, with a focus on the interrogation of contemporary and historical culture. This November 1-5, Stefanie’s ‘Embarqued: Stories of Soil’ takes the stage at BAM. This new dance-theater work is an excavation of self and country, created in textiles, skin tones, labor, land, humor, and moving bodies. 

Stefanie talks with us about how she got her start in the arts, founding Company SBB, her creative process, and the impetus for ‘Embarqued.’ Tickets for ‘Embarqued’ are available at https://www.bam.org/embarqued.
