Float
Float is an endearing piece that elicits the nostalgic yearning for childhood and the aggressive physicality of the adult body. Deemed "a clear glimpse into an enticingly familiar world" by the New York Times, Float's simple but poignant theme evokes that the body can not alone articulate what the mind and heart want to say.

Julian Barnett (Choreographer) began his training at the Idyllwild Arts Academy and continued at the Joffrey Ballet and Alvin Ailey Schools in New York. He is a graduate of New York University's Tisch School of the Arts where he received his B.F.A., and since then has been choreographing and performing in an array of projects that have taken him from the Metropolitan Opera House to the Wuppertal Theater with Pina Bausch. He has been a resident choreographer at the Berkshire Theater Festival where he choreographed and starred in numerous productions, including and most notably the musical THE WHO'S TOMMY. Barnett's work has been presented internationally and domestically in such venues as Avery Fisher Hall in Lincoln Center, Joyce Soho, La Mama Theatre, Symphony Space, the Dancenow/NYC Festival, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, SummerDance in Santa Barbara and the SEAD Theater in Salzburg, Austria, amongst others. As a founding member of johannes wieland where he performed along side with Pina Bausch's Tanztheater, he has also had the privilege of working in the companies of Doug Elkins, Shapiro and Smith, Eun Me Ahn, Mark Dendy, Larry Keigwin and the Metropolitan Opera Ballet under Doug Varone and Sean Curran. Barnett continually enjoys choreographing for film and video as well as for theater, and hopes to further the realm of conventional performance and art.

Karen and Peter Lennon are the Exclusive Underwriters of Float.
