Event Description

Artist in Residence GERALDCASELDANCE presents Save The Robots!
November 21-23

GERALDCASELDANCE presents Save The Robots! – a physically powerful dance that examines gentrification and loss. Borrowing the title from a 1980’s after hours club in the Lower East Side of New York City, Save The Robots! seeks to evoke the metaphor of mortality through stylized movements and choreographic structures that contemplate the death of creativity and individuality. Music, fashion and dances from that specific time period set the stage for this theatrically rich dance.

Philippine-born Gerald Casel received a BFA in Dance from The Juilliard School in 1991 and an MFA in Dance from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2007 assisted by a fellowship from the Advanced Opportunity Program. He has danced in the companies of Michael Clark, Stanley Love, Zvi Gotheiner, Lar Lubovitch, The Metropolitan Opera Ballet, Sungsoo Ahn and Stephen Petronio where he was a member from 1991-1998 and 2001-2005 serving as the Stephen Petronio Company’s Assistant Director and Director of Education. He continues to re-stage Petronio repertory on major companies. In 1997 he was honored to receive a New York Dance and Performance Award “Bessie” for sustained achievement. Casel began making choreography for his company GERALDCASELDANCE in 1998 performing at Dance Theater Workshop, Danspace Project at St. Mark's Church, Joyce SoHo, Danceworks (Milwaukee), Conduit (Portland) and ODC Theater (San Francisco). www.geraldcaseldance.com
