Back to New York City – Danspace Project

Back to New York City



“…Despite enduring difficulties, dance artists have come here to forge their paths ever since the birth of “modern” dance and they continue to do so…These artists share a rebelliousness that stems from their need to re-invent reasons to dance, both as they change and as contemporary dance becomes increasingly marginalized in our culture and sometimes even from other art forms.

I am not only thinking about making dances, I am thinking about what keeps each of us looking for connections with each other and the world through dancing.”
