Lynchtown

Dates:

Monday, January 28, 2013 - 7:00pm

Created by Charles Weidman in 1936 and performed by members of Nimbus Dance Works to live music.

The Charles Weidman Dance Foundation, Inc.
Is pleased to announce the performance of
Lynchtown
created by Charles Weidman in 1936 and performed by members of Nimbus Dance Works to live music.
 
Staged by Margaret O’Sullivan with support from the Charles Weidman Dance Foundation, this Weidman dance is recognized as one of the classic works of American Modern Dance.  Though choreographed in 1936 it is still relevant today as its themes of bias, intolerance, and hate resonant with contemporary audiences. 
 
Nimbus Dance Works will present Lynchtown, in partnership with the Charles Weidman Dance Foundation, during their New York City season
 
February 15th – 17th
Alvin Ailey Citigroup Theater
405 West 55th Street (at 9th Avenue), NYC
Inquires at 212-405-9000
 
Additionally, Samuel Pott Nimbus Artistic Director will choreograph a new dance, We Acquiesce, that examines some of the same thematic material in Lynchtown from a contemporary perspective. The program also features repertory from Nimbus Dance Works including a premiere by Taiwanese choreographer Huang Yi, and work by Pedro Ruiz.
 
On Friday February 15th, immediately following the opening night performance, Nimbus Dance Works invites friends and supporters to join the company to celebrate at the Worlds Apart/Worlds Together reception with special public recognition of the Taipei Cultural Center and the Charles Weidman Dance Foundation. The festive event will feature wine, light hors d'oeuvres, and live music.
