 Fresh off the overwhelming success of last summer’s presentation of four female choreographers, Gotham Arts Exchange presents the Gotham Dance Festival, returning to The Joyce Theater with expanded programming and a newly branded festival. Gotham Dance Festival presents six programs featuring ten choreographers from June 1-12, 2011 at The Joyce Theater, 175 Eighth Avenue, NYC.  The festival will also present six talented emerging artists in Summer Sampler Matinees.  Tickets start at 0 and are available at 212-242-0800 or www.joyce.org.

In its Joyce debut, the Brian Brooks Moving Company will present a World Premiere piece set to original music by Adam Crystal, who has scored numerous films and commercials, and has performed with such musicians as Fischerspooner and The Citizens Band, among others.  The company will also present "MOTOR" (2010), an exploration of perpetual motion performed by the group’s seven dancers.  Featuring a tunnel-like structure that stretches three miles of cables beyond the stage and over the audience, "MOTOR" is set to a propulsive score by Jonathan Pratt with costumes by Liz Prince.  Touring internationally since 2002, the Brian Brooks Moving Company was described in The Village Voice as “smart, utterly unpretentious heroes, they make your eyes water and your spirit soar.”

Wednesday, June 1 at 7:30pm (Opening Night); Friday, June 3 at 8pm; Sunday, June 5 at 7:30pm
