DANCENOW Joe’s Pub Festival

September 9, 10, 11, 12

Joe's Pub


Doors at 6PM, Show at 7PM

DANCENOWNYC continues its twentieth anniversary celebration with the annual DANCENOWNYC Festival. Acclaimed for its adventurous short-takes format and mixed-genre programs that showcase emerging and established choreographers side by side, the 2015 Festival will feature works by some of today’s most innovative New York-based dance makers, all of whom DANCENOW has presented over the last 20 years. The Festival will take place at Joe’s Pub, Wednesday–Saturday, September 9–12 at 7pm, with an encore performance featuring a dozen producer picks on Thursday, September 24 at 7pm.

“This celebration is about honoring the amazing artists, many of whom got their start through DANCENOW and now have very successful careers, who took a leap of faith to create work for our unconventional programs over the past two decades,” said DANCENOWNYC founder and producer Robin Staff. “It also celebrates our future, moving forward into the next decade with the endless possibilities that producing at Joe’s Pub in New York City and the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks in Bethlehem, PA provides us. After 20 years, DANCENOW remains steadfast in its ‘less is more’ vision, embracing limitation as a powerful inspiration for creativity.”

Each of the 2015 Festival programs will be hosted by a choreographic team representing DANCENOW’s past, present and future, including Raja Feather Kelly and B.S. Movement (Brian Strimpel and Shaina Branfman); Nicole Wolcott and Larry Keigwin; Deborah Lohse and Mark Gindick; and Chelsea Murphy and Magda San Millan. Several artists will also revive works for this special occasion. David Parker and Jeffrey Kazin will present Old Fashion Wedding, their endearing duet from their work ShowDown, commissioned by DANCENOW in 2009. PearsonWidrig Dancetheater returns to the Festival with an excerpt from their acclaimed work Lot’s Wife, performed at the festival in 2001, and Heidi Latsky and Lawrence Goldhuber reunite as Goldhuber & Latsky for the first time in 15 years, with a reimagined version of their Heads duet. Brian Brooks, regarded as the DANCENOW mascot in the Festival’s first years, returns as a special guest for the encore performance. New and recent works by other DANCENOW veterans such as Aszure Barton, Doug Elkins, Zvi Gotheiner, Ellis Wood, and Paul Matteson will be presented alongside works by emerging choreographers Cori Marquis, Donnell Oakley, and Jordan Isadore, to name a few. The complete lineup follows.
