Re-Do, Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company’s newest dance, marks a continuum of two decades of innovative dance production without pause. The Company is known for its playful virtuosity, accessibility and charisma. Fresh from the critical success of their 20th Anniversary New York season, Intersections at the 92nd Street Y, choreographer and artistic director Daniel Gwirtzman premieres an extended re-do of his pre-existing solo Doodling, challenging the dancer who’s been with the Company the longest in the process.

In the irreverent and none-too-precious spirit of this anniversary season, along with the theme running throughout Intersections, Daniel takes a scissors, knife and his own claw-like hands to the solo he has performed numerous times over the past three years, interrupting the dance, extending sections, adding his own commentary through spoken text, reanimating and reimagining the solo. He is not doodling, but re-doodling, questioning the rules prescribed in the choreography as the very parameters of democracy are being questioned. Why follow rules?
The solo allows the movement and score to scroll calligraphically in a playful, stream-of-conscious manner like a meandering doodle on the page. This elasticity allows Daniel to explore a range of virtuosic qualities, and a diverse range of music, as the piece’s careful structure runs off the page, moving from the literal to a place of abstraction.
Doodling previewed at the Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center/Gibney (NYC), April 2016 and premiered September 2016 at the Harkness Center for Dance’s Friday at Noon series at the 92nd Street Y (NYC). Other performances include Gdański Tança Festiwal in June 2018 (Gdańsk, Poland), Arts On Site in October 2018 (NYC), Key West Dance Collective, November 2018 at the Tennessee Williams Theatre (Key West, FL); and the MidWest Regional Alternative Dance Festival (RADFest) in Kalamazoo's Epic Theater (MI), March 2019.
