Dance Performance | The 41st Annual Battery Dance Festival (in-person and online)


Dancing Wheels Company, Unconquered Warriors Nai-Ni Chen employs kung-fu fans and martial arts elements in Unconquered Warriors, her piece based on a Chinese legend about a warrior who spins a loop called the magical wheel of the wind and fire. Ballet Nepantla, Let Down and Huasteca Suite - World Premiere "Let Down" is the story of a lost love that confronts gender normative dancing, while providing representation for queer females in dance. "Huasteca Suite" is an excerpt of Ballet Nepantla's "Valentina." Linotip, Diagonal & Cain - World Premiere The duet "Diagonal" is inspired by the famous Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi, one of the most influential sculptors of the 20th-century; a moment captured in the performance from his period in the Parisian atelier, where the artist lived, created and loved. "Cain" explores the story of Cain and Abel, the first contradiction of humanity. These pieces were created in partnership with the Romanian Cultural Institute. Gaudanse, nanibu - NYC Premiere "Nanibu" investigates what it means to be royalty through imagery and movement. The choreography uses bird-like movement along with the feelings attached to colors to create the idea of a queen. Peridance Contemporary Dance Company, Just Above the Surface Created as part of a residency program commissioned by Western Michigan University, this piece explores the electric connection of human interaction--the sensations that pull people together or apart. Conceptually rooted in Yin Yue's FoCo technique, which fuses movement from both Chinese folk and contemporary dance, the work communicates non-traditional narratives atop a buzzing and complex musical undercurrent by Michel Banabila, Shifted, Machinefabriek, and Metamorphoses The Vanaver Caravan, Vanaver Caravan Retrospective In celebration of The Vanaver Caravan's 50th anniversary, the troupe's dancers and musicians present excerpts from their legacy of innovative world dance and music, a percussive tapestry of pieces from their renowned repertoire inspired by American, Irish, African, French Canadian, and Balkan traditions.
