Dance Performance |


Choreographer Catherine Galasso work is based on Boccaccio’s 14th century Decameron. The performance will combine her signature cinematic tableaux, whimsical nonlinear narratives, and charismatic performers to engage in a choreographic dialogue with the architecture and atmosphere of the venue. Performers will move between episodic and virtuosic movements on multiple planes, shaped closely by the grandeur and intrigue of the venue’s grand marble staircase, transforming the space into a singular spectacle. Catherine Galasso is a Brooklyn-based choreographer born in New York and raised in Italy. Past performances have been presented by places such as SFMoMA, Joyce SoHo, La MaMa, Danspace Project, MoCA Santa Barbara, the Bibliotheque National in Paris, the International Theater Festival in Kosovo, as well as underground Wall Street bank vaults and decaying 4-story homes.

See two dances that call to our core selves. "The Creation, Part I: Elements of the Creation" evokes and acknowledges the sacred nature of Earth, Water, Fire, and Air and our connection and reverence for Creation. "Gospels and Spirituals" is filled with hope, strength, despair, and resolve, from heartfelt appeals to God and coded messages to escape slavery to the final profound celebration of the connection with the Divine.

A performance by artist and choreographer Alexandra Bachzetsis stages banal and mutating gestures from myriad gendered references—including Greek Tsifteteli and Greek Zeibekiko dance. The work is inspired by Trisha Brown’s prescient 1983 work Set and Reset, as well as Marianne Wex’s 1979 Let’s Take Back Our Space: “Female” and “Male” Body Language as a Result of Patriarchal Structures, two works that challenge the relationship between improvisation and choreography, intuition, and socialized or coded gestures. This work was first presented in 2016 at the Festival DañsFabrik in Brest, France.

The Blues Project brings together today's best tap artists, musicians, and choreographers in an innovative evening of rhythm, original live music, explosive energy, and raw emotion. Combining exceptional tap dance company Dorrance Dance with the elemental musical force that is Toshi Reagon & Biglovely, the work reveals "a deep merging of forms: As Reagon's music envelops the dancing, the dancing seeps through to the last chord and sometimes even beyond it." (The New York Times)

Will Rawls’s performance is a choreographed meditation on Uncle Remus, the fictional narrator of the Southern folklore compilation Brer Rabbit Tales. Invented by white Southern folklorist and author, Joel Chandler Harris, Uncle Remus was a composite identity based on Harris’s account of African-American oral cultures on the plantations where Harris served as an apprentice. Manipulating a large-scale keyboard composed of removable letters, the dancers will spell out a long-form story, destabilizing the fictional dialects of Harris’s imagination, further exploring the limits of linguistic sense and written speech. Will Rawls is a choreographer, writer, and lifelong performer based in Brooklyn, New York. His practice combines dance with other media to investigate the poetics of blackness, ambiguity, and abstraction. His inquiries into bodily experiences and humanity aim to redraw notions of power and form. July 10-12, 2018

An abstract story of society and human existence, One Thousand Million Seconds explores the humanity of the performers and addresses themes of life, existence, and happiness. The work presents a series of disconnected vignettes that explore facets of modern life, reality, and time. The work wanders through human destinies—a trip that exposes the beauty of a some moments, and the pettiness of others; humor; tragedy; and life’s magnificence. Presented by Gibney Dance.

Abraham.In.Motion (A.I.M) is a modern dance company whose mission is to create an evocative interdisciplinary body of work through a sensual and provocative vocabulary with a strong emphasis on sound, human behavior and all things visual. Born into hip-hop culture in the late 1970s and grounded in founder Kyle Abraham’s artistic upbringing in classical cello, piano, and the visual arts, the goal of the movement is to delve into identity in relation to a personal history. The company will perform a selection of pieces including "Strict Love," "The Quiet Dance" and "Drive." Founded in 2005 by Bessie Award winning choreographer Joya Powell, Movement of the People Dance Company is dedicated to addressing historic and present socio-cultural injustices through dance. Primarily a dance-theater company, their choreography combines dynamic contemporary dance with traditional dances, and develops a sensitive balance of pedestrian gestural phrases with grounded visceral movements that use breath and musicality at its core. The company is comprised of dancers from diverse multicultural backgrounds and international experiences.
