In 2011, Jonathan Campbell and Austin Diaz formed MADboots dance co. on a whim after discovering an intriguing artistic chemistry. Devoting themselves to creating works exclusively for men, Campbell and Diaz balance artistic director duties through a blend of compromise, collaboration, and the conviction that two viewpoints can elicit a more interesting response.
While MADboots dance co. may have originated as a lark, Campbell and Diaz have amassed an impressive resume in a short period of time. Their performing credits include showcases at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival’s Inside/Out series, the Duo Multicultural Arts Center, and festivals in Italy and Canada. They have taught master classes at Dance New Amsterdam, Broadway Dance Center, and throughout the United States.
