The Dance Enthusiast dances up close to some of the hottest dance companies in NYC.
Danspace Project's fall performance season opens with new work by Sarah Skaggs. Skaggs, who first showed work at Danspace Project in 1990, has focused on the intersection between social and concert dance, the casual and formal, the ambiguous and the definitive, over the last two decades. Skaggs created "The New Ecstatic" both as a forward-looking piece that offers a new meaning for the ecstatic in the contemporary moment, and as a retrospective understanding of her earlier work, which dealt with the ecstatic as part of her core movement vocabulary.
Dance Up Close, part of Engaging Dance Audiences, administered by Dance/USA and made possible with generous funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, is designed to bring online audiences closer to our New York dance community.
Through short HD Videos combining rehearsal footage with interviews, audiences are offered an uncommon entry point to the behind the scenes of movement creation. They are able to see dancers and choreographers, intimately, as people they can relate to - not only abstract figures onstage.
