Dancing Up Close to "A Rite" Part 2: Conversation with Anne Bogart Artistic Director of SITI Company and Janet Wong, Associate Artistic Director of Bill T. Jones/ Arnie Zane Dance Company-
The Dance Enthusiast dances up close to some of the hottest dance ( and theater) companies in NYC.
Commissioned by Carolina Performing Arts, " A Rite, " which is part of the 30th anniversary of Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company and the 20th anniversary of SITI Company, received its world premiere in January 2013 at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
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.
