Tim Martin Choreographies
Tim Martin and Debora Broderius, 1989.

Mr. Martin was living in the Boston area in 1988 when he first formed a duet company with long-time ballet partner Debora Broderius and began to promote his choreography throughout Massachusetts.

At that time, his background was chiefly in modern styles and improvisation. Ms. Broderius' background was chiefly in ballet. Working together they created a number of hybrid works which integrated a variety of styles.

In 1989, they were awarded the Boston Artists Foundation Choreography Fellowship and were subsequently invited to perform at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival.

A short time later Mr. Martin moved to New York City where the company repertory was presented at such diverse showcases as:

   — The Fiorello Festival by New Choreographers on Point
   — Avant-garde-arama at P.S. 122
   — Sundays at Three and Fridays at Noon by the 92nd Street Y
   — The Salon Project at the Dia Art Foundation
   — Ballet Builders at the Clark Studio Theater at Lincoln Center

Internationally, they have performed in:
   — Greece: Third International Festival of Contemporary Dance on the island of Crete and Tripotamos Arts Center on the island of Tinos
   — France: American Choreographers Showcase, Paris
   — Canada: Fringe Festival of Independent Dance Artists, Toronto

In 1991, Mr. Martin and Ms. Broderius were commissioned to create a new work, Cybertech, on Wes Chapman's American Ballet, a touring ensemble of principals and soloists culled from the ranks of American Ballet Theatre.

In 1997, they were commissioned to create a new work for Maggio Danza, a ballet company in Florence, Italy, then under the directorship of Karole Armitage. QXK, the resulting work, received its premiere in March of 1998.
