Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company was presented by The 92nd Street Y's Harkness Center for Dance, an important historic venue for dance. The Fridays at Noon Series September 23, 2016 was titled The Dancing Man Dances On and featured ten male choreographers. Daniel Gwirtzman's premiere Doodling closed the show, which he also danced. The solo allows the movement and score to scroll calligraphically in a playful, stream-of-conscious manner like a meandering doodle on the page. This elasticity allows the dancer to explore a range of virtuosic qualities, and a diverse range of music, as the piece’s careful structure runs off the page, moving from the literal to a place of abstraction.
