MONTCLAIR, NJ: An Afternoon with The Moving Architects: Jubilee & Knell
The Moving Architects
Celebrating The Year of the Woman in 2020 was overshadowed by the economic and social upheaval of the COVID-19 pandemic, Anti-Racism Movements, and political discord. Instead of celebrating female achievements, 2020 has brought us face-to-face with deep emotions and great disappointments. The Moving Architects have chosen to channel these emotions into a narrative of empowerment, resiliency, grieving, and of finding meaning in the dissonance through the new collaborative work An Afternoon with The Moving Architects: Jubilee & Knell. In the words of poet Emily Dickinson, both Jubilee (happiness) and Knell (sorrow) can be felt at the same time, as we do in this moment.
Join The Moving Architects for a live outdoor performance on October 24, 2020 at the beautiful grounds of Van Vleck Gardens in Montclair, NJ as we celebrate bringing the female representation to the forefront of dance for nearly 14 years. This event supports TMA’s mission of producing new works, offering community classes, and providing platforms for dialogue and collaboration. The company will perform new work created virtually during the pandemic, alongside adjusted repertory work that removes partnering and keeps the dancers socially distanced.
