“It’s time for the next revolution…” — New York Times on dance in New York
Catch timely works of compassion, courage, and sass by movement-makers from around the world who are now based in New York. Nami Yamamoto brings the timing of Japanese kyogen theater along with the illusion of puppetry to her latest choreography, a howling flower. According to the New York Times, Yamamoto “explores these dualities with a light, sure touch.” Nora Chipaumire, who lived through Zimbabwe’s second war of liberation, is described by critics as “a fierce, riveting force.” She presents her solo Convoys, Curfews and Roadblocks as a memoir of survival. luciana achugar, dubbed “downtown’s wildchild from Uruguay” by Dance Magazine, and her company of “six uncivilized women” perform the blue-collar A Super Natural Return to Love armed with a manifesto that declares the collective body and reclaims the pleasures of the flesh.
