The Encounter is made possible, in part, through a Virginia B. Toulmin Fellowship for Women Leaders in Dance @ The Center for Ballet Arts at NYU. Special Thanks to Andrea Salvatore and Courtney Sams at Center for Ballet & the Arts and to Melanie Person and The Ailey School Junior Division Training program. Thank you to Caroline Haidet for video documentation and Spencer Weidie, Ryutaro Mishima, and Nel Shelby Productions.
The Encounter is an ongoing project for intergenerational communities around the world. The Encounter: Buffalo was seeded in fall 2021 for a May 2022 premiere at Torn Space Theater. The Encounter: Napoli will be created in January 2022. For more information, please contact us at: email@example.com
