Doodling at Gdański Festiwal Tańca-Poland

Daniel performed his solo Doodling, seen above, at the Gdański Festiwal Tańca, in Gdańsk, Poland on June 14, 2018. The international solo dance festival featured other solo artists from France, Germany, Holland, Croatia, Israel, Spain, Italy, Greece, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, and Poland!

“American Daniel Gwirtzman treated the title seriously in an unpretentious and witty “Doodling” (“Bazgrolić”); the show is a combination of various types of movement (performed for very diverse music), dance “scribbles”, freely taken up and abandoned by the dancer.” Mirosław Baran

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 [...]
