Suchu Dance is a postmodern dance/theater performing group that has been producing strange, artsy, combustible, humorous work since 1998. Rooted in Houston's arts scene, Suchu Dance founded three distinct performing venues in the city: the Duplex Center for the Arts in Montrose (1993-1999), Barnevelder Movement Arts Center in Downtown, (2001-2013) and its new home, Suchu Dance, opened February 2013 in Garden Oaks.
Suchu Dance experiments frequently in cross-disciplinary, non-proscenium, experiential, immersive performances/exhibitions, all with the goal of confounding the conventions and expectations of performance.
The new Suchu Dance space formerly housed the Swayze School of Dance and the Houston Jazz Ballet Company, both founded and directed by Patsy Swayze. Suchu Dance has restored the original 60s & 70s era dance space to be a multi-purpose home for creativity and interdisciplinary arts.
