In a follow up to the success of July’s world premiere of "Arabesque" and "Tango Unframed," Fadi J. Khoury, Artistic Director of FJK Dance, will present "Works in Progress" at the 92nd Street Y, Tuesday, November 4 at 8:30pm for one performance only. Khoury, who serves as FJK Dance Company’s choreographer as well as its principal dancer, connects Argentinean tango, Middle Eastern movement, classical ballet and ballroom dance in a brilliant contemporary dance setting. 

According to the New York Times, FJK Dance “strips away unnecessary glitter from these forms to emphasize the beauty of movement itself… in 'Arabesque,' (Khoury) connects ballet and Middle Eastern movement to create illusions of desert mirages. 'Tango Unframed,' which explores concepts of partnering, shows how Argentine tangos can express both solitude and freedom.”

"Works in Progress" will feature the evolution of these two works.
