Matychak will begin working on their second evening length work, The Body Keeps the Score. Taken from the choreographer's personal journey in dancing with chronic illness, The Body Keeps the Score is a vulnerable, yet non-apologetic exploration of how limitation can be our best asset. While in residence at Brooklyn College, the company will also work on movement vocabulary for a commission by LaGuardia Arts High School and further develop Lacuna, a work first created through Devices: Choreographic Intensive, a mentoring program of Doug Varone and Dancers. Founded in 2011, Matychak is a project-based contemporary dance company that bridges the divide between the uptown and downtown modern dance worlds, as seen through the eyes of artistic director Nathalie Matychak.
