CoreDance Contemporary’s Surface & Skin investigates the parallel universe between the human body and architecture. Shapes of light invade chosen spaces, telling their story through the decomposition of movements and kinetics.
CoreDance Contemporary is an Australian modern dance company residing in New York City. Founded by Artistic Director Rebecca McCormac in 2011, the company is comprised of six dance artists who bring different cultural and dance backgrounds to the fore to form a hardworking and dedicated ensemble.
