Sept 28 Stay Late Discussion*: CLOSE! A Conversation on Witnessing the Body. Moderated by Neil Greenberg.
*Stay Late event follows the 7:30pm performance only
beginning of something returns to New York City after a sold out run at The Chocolate Factory in 2011. An exploration of movement and energy, beginning probes and reveals the female image and psyche.
The audience is seated in close proximity to the dancers who perform on an elevated platform creating a shift in scale that empowers the cast. This high intensity 2012 cast includes Rebecca Serrell Cyr, Natalie Green, Rebecca Warner and Rebecca Wender.
The reconstruction of beginning of something is made possible, in part, by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Jerome Foundation. Additional support is given by contributors to the Dance Theater Workshop Commissioning Fund at New York Live Arts.
beginning of something was also supported by an artist residency on Governor’s Island, administered by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and a space grant through the Movement Research Artist in Residency program.
