Past Events

Workshop with Sarah Horne:
“What Moves You?”– A Creative Aging Workshop
May 2 / 6:30–8:00 pm
Gibney Dance 280 Broadway

Let’s break down age barriers and remove all assumptions. When movers of all ages and abilities enter a room, a new community is co-created. Specifically tailored to learn more about and share creative aging techniques in an open environment, this class will also embrace our inner knowledge to tell personal stories through physical exploration. In this teaching practice, the value is placed on the ability to create space for dancers of all abilities, to explore dance and movement in a respectful and joyful way, to improve the quality of life of the participants, and create a positive community experience. All ages welcome; no prior movement experience is necessary.

Trust and Warnings
August 27-30, 2015
HERE (145 6th Avenue)

How do you decide when to trust someone? Are you able to forgive betrayal? Why do you end up hurting the ones you adore the most? Trust and Warnings is a work about love, deception, and truth. Fusing movement with text and music, four dancers share their experiences with relationships during a performance that asks what your story is and how you receive love. Explore desire, doubt, selflessness, atonement, and transformation by watching conversations unfold through painful solos, touching duets, deceptive trios, and all-consuming quartets. In an evening that delves into raw emotion and the nature of intimate human stories, the work inspires us to heal from heartache and gain understanding through pain. Trust and Warnings is a show for anyone who has ever loved.

This production is a part of SubletSeries@HERE: Co-op, HERE’s curated rental program, which provides artists with subsidized space and equipment, as well as technical support.

Jones/Arnie Zane), ModArts Dance Collective, Grace Courvoisier Dance Company, Ginger Cox, LorenaEganDance, Jennifer Pommiss, and Leah Fox. Sarah’s choreography, “Looking Girls” was showcased during A Modern Tribute.
