The 8th Making Moves Dance Festival – Free Afternoon Show
September 16, 2017 @ 2:00 pmFree
Making Moves Dance Festival is a unique annual opportunity for New York based emerging choreographers and dance companies to showcase their original works that span the globe and dance genres. The participating artists will not only receive a monetary award, but also be provided with access to rehearsal spaces and an opportunity to showcase their works during the day long festival.
This year, seven selected dance groups will present their works in two bills: a free afternoon outdoor presentation which encourages public participation and an evening stage presentation which features a commissioned work by choreographer Gabrielle Lamb.
The afternoon performances include the thought provoking work of T.MAJ Dance Company that examines humanity and social transformation; Ballet, Inc. that combines an eclectic accessible range of genres of dance to create an individual contemporary ballet aesthetic; and Kalamandir Dance Company that uses the vocabulary of classical Indian dance to explore new spaces of artistic expression.
