konverjdans: spring 2017 performances

We are thrilled to announce four of our upcoming performances in New York City this spring!

konverjdans has been invited to perform on the opening weekend of Nothing Twice, a visual arts exhibition at the John Doe gallery in Brooklyn that will feature seven female painters and sculptors "preoccupied with ephemeral materials" and a "relentless sense of transience" - the perfect setting, we think, for the most ephemeral of art forms: DANCE. So we're teaming with our resident musical genius, percussionist/composer Max Kanowitz to exploit the capricious nature of unplanned movement, sound and space, and performing 'Only Once', an evening of completely improvised music and dance, on March 11, 2017.

We're also choreographing a new piece in collaboration with visual artist Nancy Baker, whose wonderful and dynamic work is directly inspiring and driving our choreographic process. The piece, set to new music by Kanowitz, will be performed on April 7, 8 and 9 at CounterPointe5 - Norte Maar's annual showcase of "new work by women choreographers working with the pointe shoe" in collaboration with female visual artists.
