New Releases Choreographers’ Showcase
Mixes Dance and Technology
By tackling new and topical subject matter with technical prowess and technologic know-how, the artists of New Releases invite you to dive in and discover the cutting edge of choreographers working today. The annually curated New Releases Choreographers’ Showcase begins again at Dance Place on Saturday, July 20 at 8pm and Sunday, July 21 at 7pm.
With a wide array of new and established choreographers, the mood will range wildly from pensive solos to raucous experimentations. Choreographers include Sarah Ewing, Nate Bond & Kjerstin Lysne, Lynne Price, Trent Williams, Sarah Chapin, Bradley Porter, Annie Choudhury, Ben Levine, Ralph Glenmore, and 2012 New Releases Commissionee, Junichi Fukuda.
The works shown include a new piece by the Dance Place tech team, led by Technical Director Ben Levine, examining the performer/audience/technician relationship in a series of high-octane dance pieces. Sarah Ewing's multi-media work of movement, sound and film uses a pool of data to inform the creation of the performance score. Ralph Glenmore, former principal dancer with The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, sets a classic jazz dance on students in the Dance Place Repertory & Performance class.
