Announcing Fall 2011 at Danspace Project
August 24, 2011
A LETTER FROM EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, JUDY HUSSIE-TAYLOR
Our exciting fall season includes performances and premieres from a wide range of movement artists including the inimitable Deborah Hay – returning for a one-night-only benefit performance – and a special performance by Ruth Zaporah, founder of Action Theater. Danspace Project will present international artists Jonathan Burrows, Matteo Fargion, and Hooman Sharifi, as well as new work by Vanessa Anspaugh, Kimberly Bartosik, Maura Nguyen Donohue, Brennan Gerard & Ryan Kelly, Heather Kravas, Jeremy Wade, and Tere O’Connor. We will continue our well-loved community programs FOOD FOR THOUGHT with curators Douglas Dunn, Jack Ferver, and Pam Tanowitz, and DraftWork curated by Ishmael Houston-Jones.
Our “Conversations Without Walls” series is intended to continue the dialogue sparked by the acclaimed Platforms, providing further context through discussions of past and future Platforms, current issues in dance, performance and the arts today. We invited Jenn Joy to organize this series of talks based on ideas that have emerged during the Platforms over the last two years. Danspace Project’s Platform series is part of a larger initiative entitled the Choreographic Center Without Walls (CW2) which aims to examine and discover new ways of providing context, curatorial support and space for choreographers and their work.
We invite you to join us and look forward to seeing you at Danspace Project this fall!
