Bienvenue欢迎WelcomeBienvenidoأهلا بك is Stefanie Batten Bland’s reaction as global artist and citizen to the present political climate in which walls have become synonymous with barriers separating people and places. A dance-theatre collaboration between choreographer Stefanie Batten Bland, visual artist Benjamin Heller and composer Paul Damian Hogan, BienvenueWelcome… approaches graffiti-decorated walls as communal canvases that express the past and present of its people.

Company SBB // Stefanie Batten Bland – Choreographer/Director/Movement Director is a 2019 American Ballet Theatre Women’s Movement Initiative Choreographer.  As a Jerome Robbins Awardee, Batten Bland’s interdisciplinary creative practice is embedded in human relationships, the communicative choices we make, and how we fit into space and place. She interrogates the preconceived notions embedded within contemporary and historical culture and situates her work at the intersection of installation and dance-theatre in live performance settings. The company was founded in 2008 in France and continues to work with both European and American artists.
Company SBB has been seen in the United States, Europe and Asia.  Also intrigued by dance cinema, SBB has created eleven films that have been seen in international festivals in Europe, South America, the United States and South Africa. She has also choreographed outside of concert platforms for galas, publicity, Off-Broadway and industrials.
Currently Stefanie Batten Bland is Movement Director for the theatrical production “Eve’s Song” directed by Jo Bonney that opens at The Public Theater in October and is a 2019 NYU Center For The Ballet Arts Fellow.
Stefanie Batten Bland is completing her MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts with a concentration in Performance Creation at Goddard College in Vermont and resides in SoHo, with her family. For more visit
