Nimbus Dance Works presents the company’s 2014 Jersey City Season at Grace Church Van Vorst, May 15-17. The season includes four eclectic dance works including the world premiere of Surface Tension by Nimbus Artistic Director Samuel Pott, the Company Premiere of Backspace by New York-based choreographer Francesca Harper, and reprises of Turkish choreographer Korhan Basaran’s 2012 work Untitled, and Pott’s 2010 work Six Chansons.
Nimbus company dancers represent a select group of international dance artists hailing from Holland, Taiwan, South Africa, Japan, and throughout the United States. PeiJu Chien-Pott, recently widely acclaimed for her New York performances with the Martha Graham Dance Company and subsequently promoted to the rank of Principal Dancer of that company, will perform in Nimbus’ Spring Season.
Samuel Pott’s new work Surface Tension explores the concept of surfaces and borders – the surfaces of the dancers’ bodies illustrate the meeting point between self and other and the stage space conveys a world of borderlines and crossings.Surface Tension is set to the piano music of Johannes Brahms and Franz Liszt, along with an edited sound score created by Mr. Pott. Also new to the company isBackspace, a duet by Francesca Harper, former principal dancer of Ballet Frankfurt, Dance Theater of Harlem and Director of the Francesca Harper Project.Backspace shows off Ms. Harper’s uncanny ability to merge industrial, abstract music with intensely personal and expressive movement invention. Nimbus will also reprise two distinct works from the company repertory: Turkish choreographer Korhan Basaran’s Untitled, a work created for the company in 2012 and set to an anguished and exquisite musical score by Fazil Say, and Pott’s Six Chansons, set to choral music of Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel.
Immediately following the performance on Friday, May 16th, Nimbus celebrates the opening of the company’s new Downtown Jersey City dance studio with:Signed, Sealed, Delivered! a DJ dance party and reception event. Attendees will cut loose with Nimbus company dancers and company supporters. Donors to Nimbus’ studio will be recognized with a champagne toast, including: the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, Goldman Sachs, SILVERMAN, and the Hudson County Office of Cultural Affairs and Continuum Design.
