While the choreography has not changed since its premiere in 2005, the solo has definitely evolved. Says Daniel: “I’ve remained faithful to the steps, however the performance has deepened and become more theatrical. I’ve become more manipulative with the audience – if they don’t respond, I take responsibility for that. Character has truly become an interactive piece.”

Doodling Delivers!

Doodling from Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company on Vimeo.

Choreographer, director and dancer Daniel Gwirtzman closed the program of ten choreographers at the 92nd Street Y Friday, September 23, a program called The Dancing Man Dances On, part of the Harkness Center for Dance’s Friday at Noon series. The solo features six distinct pieces of music and moods, as the dancer doodles different movements. Exuberance was how one choreographer in the audience described the work. Daniel says, “Doodling is a piece that will develop and continue to be performed. I can’t wait to dance it next!”
