ABOUT US

Originally founded by dancers Braeden Barnes and Ryland Early, Symbiosis Arts aims to explore fresh elements in dance and choreography while inciting new perspectives on art through collaboration with other artists. The Symbiosis Arts creators became interested in each other’s artistic opinions and worldviews, and Symbiosis was derived from their mutual desire to build a platform for their creativity. The company is now based in Chicago, IL where Barnes has established collaborative dance projects, educational workshops, and immersive events.

 

Symbiosis Arts has a strong foundation in dance but is taking an expanded approach to incorporate multiple mediums of art, in hopes of further enriching the hearts and minds of our audiences. Symbiosis Arts strives to continue growing artistically by questioning norms, building unorthodox collaborations, and being open-minded about how art can be seen and consumed.
