Leah Stein is the Leah Stein Dance Company's artistic director, and she is recognized for utilizing both urban and wild environments. She had been able to create performances in places such as her home town in Philadelphia, Poland, and British Columbia. Her collaborations with sculptors, composers, and poets, result in several places being made accessible. Stein drew most of her initial inspiration from the physics of movement, the forces of nature, and the various elements of the natural environment. In choosing sites for her performances, she tends to select places that are often seen as unremarkable, since these less-considered sites are attributed with a lot of life. Stein considers “resonate” as one of the important concepts she applies, and how the various environmental elements interact.
