3 Premieres, 3 Nights Only
JODY OBERFELDER DANCE PROJECTS presents three new works March 1-3 at Abrons Arts Center on the Lower East Side. On the program is RE: DRESS, a solo performed by Jody Oberfelder, set to music by Clogs, and the premiere of SUNG HEROES, a quartet which places each dancer in a cinematic lens, working through his or her own -- and others' -- emotional narratives to connect to the superhero within. Music is by The Section Quartet.

THROB is a conceptual and physically demanding work inspired by the biological workings of the heart and informed by conversations with cardiologist Dr. Holly Andersen. Composer Andy Akiho, recently commissioned by the New York Philharmonic, will be performing live with the company. Funding for the live music has been provided by a New Music USA Live Music for Dance Grant. A sound designer, Weston Minissali, adds the dancers' actual heart rates to the score.

Collaborators for the evening include lighting designer Kathy Kaufmann, costumes by Katrin Schnabl and dancers Lonnie Poupard, ChristinaNoel Reaves, Jake Szczypek and Jessica Weiss
