WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Festival returns for two weeks with programs featuring cutting-edge artists, world premieres, and Joyce debuts. Week One begins with Brian Brooks Moving Company in the premiere of BIG CITY, a work that examines the concept of rebuilding after a destructive event. The week also highlights choreographer Jodie Gates, who will set work on Ballet X and Colorado Ballet. Sharing the program with Gates will be Peter Quanz, whose Canadian-based company Q Dance/Quanz Danse will perform two works, including In Tandem, set to a score by Steve Reich. Week Two opens with a special one-night celebration featuring multiple artists and continues with the Los Angeles-based BODYTRAFFIC performing a world premiere as well as Stijn Celis' Fragile Dwellings, with a light installation by Erwin Redl. The Festival concludes with Gallim Dance, under the direction of Andrea Miller, who performs a world premiere exploring how the knowledge that we are going to die shapes the way we love. One Night Celebration Program On Tuesday June 5th, Gotham Arts Exchange celebrates the choreographic work of American women. The program includes work from the legends of our time and the women who bring audience members to their feet. We're also going to throw in a few up and coming voices.
