Dark Circles Contemporary Dance (DCCD) was founded in 2010 in Seoul, South Korea. The Company's newest branch—based in North Texas and lead by internationally award-winning choreographer and Dance Magazine “25 to Watch” breakout star of 2015, Joshua L. Peugh—has been hailed as “the area’s most exciting dance company” (Star-Telegram) and as the "Best Dance Company" by D Magazine (2015 & 2016) and Dallas Observer (2016). The young company has been praised as “frequently stunning, and always fascinating” (DFW.com) and commended for innovative combinations of classical technique and modern movement styles. Since its inception, the company has performed nationally and internationally at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, Theater am Aegi, in Hannover, Germany, and at the Ailey Citigroup Theater in New York, among others. Repertory includes works by Joshua L. Peugh, Gregory Dolbashian, Mike Esperanza, James Gregg, Fabio Liberti and MADBOOTS. DCCD is dedicated to bringing the progressive work of international choreographers and dancers to a worldwide audience.
