Dorvillier is a two-time Bessie Award-winning choreographer and recipient of the 2013 Doris Duke Performing Artist Award for her groundbreaking work over the past two decades. She has created pioneering choreographic work that challenges the definition of dance and choreography in New York City and abroad. “Dorvillier’s choreography mines these limit conditions (of representation, of media) to effect perceptual, emotional, conceptual disturbance in the ways we apprehend dance,” explains performance scholar Jenn Joy in an essay published in the Diary of an Image book.
As part of Danspace Project’s Choreographic Center Without Walls (CW²), Danspace continues to look for new ways to reveal multi-faceted processes in contemporary choreographic practice. Danspace Project’s PLATFORM program is a series of guest artist-curated programs that are part of the Choreographic Center Without Walls. As a framework for Danspace’s presentations and commissions, CW² aims to examine and discover ways of providing context, curatorial support, and space for choreographers and their works. The CW² and its PLATFORM series receives major support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
