Chen Dance Center presents newsteps, its semi-annual emerging choreographer’s series, May 11-13 at 7:30 PM. Since 1994, its theater has supported and presented hundreds of young dancers and choreographers developing innovative new works through space and production grants. At Chen Dance Center, 70 Mulberry Street (corner of Mulberry and Bayard in NYC's Chinatown).
Seven choreographers were selected for the May 11-13 concerts: Joshua Dunn, Molly Mingey, Deborah Gladstein with Helen Yee, Quinn Dixon & Bree Nasby, Ryan Pliss, Mary Grace McNally. Chosen through an open audition by a panel of dance leaders, each young choreographer receives a small stipend, free rehearsal space and three public performances at the Chen Dance Center.
- "private parts" by Quinn Dixon & Bree Nasby make private parts public, sharing weakness and joy;
- Ryan Pliss will collaborate with a cinematographer to investigate how we can learn to understand our own personal identity through our relationship to others;
- In Joshua Dunn's "The 1 Percent" we watch a central character's internal and external interactions with herself and those around her, questioning ideas of trust, success, and sexual exploration.
- Deborah Gladstein collaborates with musician Helen Yee in a work that combines movement and sound to cultivate awareness of breath, heightened sense perception, and exercising imagination.
- Mary Grace McNally delves into the complicated development of womanhood, exploring how society's powerful imaging of women can manifest in the body
Subway: Take the 6, N, R, Q, J, Z to Canal Street, then walk East along Canal towards Chinatown. Turn right on to Mulberry Street then one block south to Bayard. The theater is on the northeast corner of Mulberry and Bayard, 2nd floor.
