York College Arts Festival: Dance!
May 11, 2018 @ 8:00 pm$10
Don’t miss this fantastic evening of dance that will include performances by CUNY Dance Initiative companies Matthew Westerby and Company and Johnnie Cruise Mercer/TheREDprojectNYC
Matthew Westerby Company is motivated to create projects that foster community, building works that are accessible to all as participants and audience. Westerby’s choreographic approach is inclusive yet challenging by nature, asking each performer for unique contributions to the process, ensuring the work has the imprint of each participant.
Johnnie Cruise Mercer/TheREDprojectNYC is a community of artistic dare devils that choreographically and conceptually concentrate on the thorough excavation of the human subconscious through movement. Using conversation and difference as an inspiration for creation, the collective of artists are devoted to acknowledging the connection between performance and human understanding.
