ka·nei·see | collective debuted its first home season, Cookie Cutter, to sold-out audiences and a front page cover story of the SF Chronicle's 96 Hours that read “accessible and provocative, as well as unafraid to meld innovation with time-honored dance conventions.” (Nirmala Nataraj, Jan 2015). Launched in 2014, ka·nei·see | collective is a Bay Area performing arts ensemble directed by Tanya Chianese. The company creates vitalizing, accessible contemporary dance that promotes finding humor, appreciation, compassion, awareness, and celebration in our increasingly technological existence. The company has been presented at various venues including ODC Theater, Z Space, Shawl-Anderson Dance Theater, Joe Goode Annex, Dance Mission Theater, Fort Mason Center, Yerba Buena Gardens, and SF International Arts Festival. Additionally the recipient of two audience choice awards, ka·nei·see | collective tours Cookie Cutter to Southern California January 2016 and premieres its newest work Readymade in Fall 2016. “Tanya Chianese and ka·nei·see | collective are important players in the emerging contemporary dance scene.” (Heather Desaulniers, Critical Dance, Jan 2015)
