UPCOMING EVENTS

January 25, 8pm at Triskelion Arts in Brooklyn

Triskelion Arts has invited the Company to perform Thursday, January 25, 8pm, as part of their Never Before Never Again Festival. We will premiere Follow, a tightly-structured improvisatory quintet, which finds all the dancers together in the space for the first time on the performance day! The process consists of each dancer separately learning a choreographic structure from rigorously detailed written descriptions. The music will be composed by Jeff Story and heard for the first time by the cast in performance. Complex spatial patternings and pathways will demand the dancers navigate themselves carefully and fully. Cast: Derek Crescenti, Daniel Gwirtzman, Madeline Hoak, Vanessa Martinez de Baños, and Simon Phillips.

Praise for Shifting: “Left the audience in awe.”

Shifting with Courtney World and Daniel Gwirtzman

“Two guest choreographers were brought to Sewanee and created pieces that flattered the dancers’ artistic ability and athleticism. Daniel Gwirtzman, artistic director of New York City-based Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company, crafted a duet for himself and director Courtney World that emphasized the power of simplicity and left the audience in awe. World’s and Gwirtzman’s movements [...]
