THE PLAYGROUND NYC
7/17, 12:00PM- 2:00PM
Gibney Dance: Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center, 280 Broadway NYC
Entrance 53A Chambers
The Playground NYC allows dancers to experience various choreographic styles and ideas, engage with a new community of dancers, and gather resourceful information and inspiration from the array of choreographers involved. In turn, established choreographers are paid for their creative investigations, are given free space to explore new movement with professional dancers, and are provided with the opportunity to establish relationships with new dancers and fellow choreographers.
Lea Ved is a dance artist, teacher, creator, and collaborator from the USA. Since earning her BFA from The Juilliard School in New York City, she has danced with RUBBERBANDance Group (Montreal, Canada), The Royal Swedish Ballet (Stockholm, Sweden), and will join Nederlands Dans Theater 1 this August 2018 (The Hague, Netherlands). Lea maintains close ties to dance communities across the US and Canada, teaching both young dancers and professionals. She has worked closely with Victor Quijada, teaching the RUBBERBANDance Method and assisting with directing and staging repertory at Springboard Danse Montreal, USC Kaufman School of Dance, UNC School of the Arts, Université du Québec à Montréal, and Domaine Forget. Her large interest in creation and exploration earned her a nomination for the Rolex Mentor and Protege Arts Initiative, and she choreographed on GöteborgsOperans Danskompani as part of the National Swedish Collaborative Project, 3D. During her time with the Royal Swedish Ballet, Lea worked with Wim Vandekeybus, Sharon Eyal, Alexander Ekman, and performed the role of "Julia" in Mats Ek's 'Julia and Romeo'. Most recently, she collaborated on a dance film project from her solo work with ACNE Film Studios in Stockholm, and performed in a collaborative concert with the Swedish indietronic pop band 'Niki and the Dove'.
