BREAKTIME is a site-fluid reservoir for bad ideas, generated and performed by Holly Sass and Jonathan Matthews. Classmates at NYU, they were often cast together in a diverse array of work until joining forces in 2017 for Tisch Dance’s Alumni Choreographic Workshop under the mentorship of Gus Solomons, Jr. They perform anywhere that will have them, enjoy playing with folks who don’t mind jumping into the unknown with them, and rehearse in Peekskill, NY.
Andrea Ward is a contemporary choreographer and musician who teaches internationally. This summer she’s teaching in Italy at the Mediterraneo Dance Festival.
