Performing artist and choreographer Jonathan Fredrickson graduated from California Institute of the Arts in 2006, where his curiosity for multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary art was nurtured. His professional performance career has expanded 17 plus years, having danced with the Limón Dance Company, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, and most recently with Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch. On international stages, he has been featured in works by diverse artists including Pina Bausch, Nacho Duato, Mats Ek, Sharon Eyal, William Forsythe, Alonzo King, Jiří Kylián, Jose Limón, Ohad Naharin, Alan Lucien Øyen, and Dimitris Papaioannou, among others. As a choreographer that presents his work internationally, Fredrickson has created work for Ballet Idaho, Limón, Hubbard Street, and Tanztheater Wuppertal’s choreographic platform: ‹Underground›, as well as for international dance festivals and schools such as California Institute of the Arts, CalState Fullerton, Limon Institute, Sundance/Canadian Contemporary Dance Theatre and Nuova X. In 2010, he was named as one of Dance Magazine's "25 To Watch”. Jonathan’s artistic work sits at the intersection of storytelling, dance, and interdisciplinary form, by creating work that illuminates the human experience. His creative exploration has extended towards dramaturgy, most recently collaborating with Bobbi Jene Smith and Or Schraiber on their new creation Pit for Ballet Opera de Paris, that premiered in March 2023.
