10 Hairy Legs with Randy James
Randy James Aug 3, 2015 - Aug 7, 2015; Mon - Fri
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
10 Hairy Legs, founded by Randy James in 2012, is a dance company – comprised entirely of men – performing James’ work as well as existing and newly commissioned works. 10 HL does not reflect a specific point of view about the male experience, but rather celebrates and explores the tremendous technical and emotional range of the male dancer. Randy James, at the forefront of this generation's choreographers, educators and arts advocates, is the driving force of 10 Hairy Legs, serving as its Artistic Director. James was awarded his third Choreographic Fellowship from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts in 2014.
Following our 2014 New York Season, Robert Johnson, Dance Critic for The Star-Ledger noted “…since its formation in 2012, its rapid growth has been astonishing…The diversity of this programming is a treat for audiences…this company has also become a welcome source of choreographic commissions.”
Our Artistic Collaborators are choreographers Julie Bour, Seàn Curran, David Dorfman, Dan Froot, Doug Elkins, Heidi Latsky, Cleo Mack, Tiffany Mills, David Parker, Stephen Petronio, Claire Porter, Niv Sheinfeld and Oren Laor, and Manuel Vignoulle; musicians Tigger Benford, Sarah Biber, Jane Chung, Lachlan Glen, Kyle Olson, Robert Maggio, Kyle Olson and Michael Wall; and designers Abraham Cruz, Oana Botez, Cindy Capraro, Benjamin Heller, John Lasiter, Mary Kokie McNaugher, Lauren Parrish, Amanda Ringger, Amanda Shafran and Olivier Theyskens.
In addition to their work with 10 Hairy Legs, our company members are currently featured artists with The Bang Group, Stephen Petronio Company, Doug Elkins Choreography, Etc., Tiffany Mills Company, the off-Broadway hit Sleep No More and Zvi Dance, among others.
Education is an important component of our work. We provide a wide range of programs suitable for all ages, whether for the aspiring professional, novice beginner or artist citizen, focusing on the many facets of maleness as expressed through dance.
Since our founding, we have served more than 22,000 patrons, students, artists and educators with our programs of performance and education throughout the NY/NJ region, in New York City at New York Live Arts, The 92nd Street Y, Dixon Place, Joe’s Pub, The West End Theatre as part of the Soaking Wet Festival, Dance at Socrates, and on tour in The Cayman Islands and New England. Leadership funding for the company has been provided by The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, New Music USA’s Live Music for Dance Program, The Frank & Lydia Bergen Foundation, The Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation, The O'Donnell Green Music & Dance Foundation, Middlesex County Cultural and Heritage Commission, with assistance provided by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts/Dept. of State, and The Hyde & Watson Foundation.
