“Jerome Robbins Dance Division Today & Tomorrow" kicks off "From the Horse's Mouth" weekend celebration with NYPL
From the Horse's Mouth
A panel discussion, “Jerome Robbins Dance Division Today & Tomorrow,” will kick off the "From the Horse's Mouth" weekend celebration of the Jerome Robbins Dance Division of the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at the Theater at the 14th Street Y. Panelists will include current and past staff of the Jerome Robbins Dance Division.
The tribute weekend, November 6 through November 10th, will include five performances of "From the Horse’s Mouth." Dancers, musicians, historians and choreographers will participate in this special showcase presentation. Performances will take place on Nov. 7, 8 and 9 at 7:30pm and on Nov. 10 at 3pm. There will also be a matinee, a new initiative at a special price, on Sat., Nov. 9 at 3pm.
"From The Horse's Mouth," now in its 21st season, is a celebratory multi-disciplinary dance/theater production acknowledged for its meaningful storytelling and exceptional dancing. Each FTHM chapter is a unique and special "one-time only" legacy based theatrical event.
The New York Public Library’s Dance Division has in the 75 years since its creation become the world’s preeminent collection of dance research materials. Originally called the Dance Collection and housed at the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at 42nd Street, The Dance Division was renamed in honor of Jerome Robbins—one its greatest supporters—in 1999. The Division not only houses its namesake’s vast collection, but is the leading international repository for the history of dance, with documentation that dates back to 1453 and representation for dance of all styles from around the world. The archive includes irreplaceable film that dates back to 1897, unique designs by visual artists, choreographic notation, photographs, manuscript collections, shoes and many more examples of ephemera. When taken together, these materials provide the opportunity to fleetingly recapture the most elusive of the performing arts.
