Fresh off the overwhelming success of last summer’s presentation of four female choreographers, Gotham Arts Exchange presents the Gotham Dance Festival, returning to The Joyce Theater with expanded programming and a newly branded festival. Gotham Dance Festival presents six programs featuring ten choreographers from June 1-12, 2011 at The Joyce Theater, 175 Eighth Avenue, NYC. The festival will also present six talented emerging artists in Summer Sampler Matinees. Tickets start at $10 and are available at 212-242-0800 or www.joyce.org.
Kate Weare Company will present two works: the World Premiere of Garden, which grapples with the powerful issues of creative impulse, origination and identity, as well as a revival of the critically acclaimed "Lean-To" (2009), described by Deborah Jowitt of The Village Voice as: ”…eroticism in its primal, devouring purity - challenging, at times ambiguous, and infinitely complex.” Heralded by the New Yorker as “an arresting new talent,” Kate Weare returns to the Joyce with more of the striking physicality and evocative performance style that sold out houses there in 2010.
