Nai-Ni Chen’s Raindrops
to be performed by the D’amby Project in
The Thing About Art, See
September 2-4, 2016
The CENTER for Performing Arts at Rhineback
Nai-Ni Chen’s seminal work Raindrops will be performed as part of the 4th annual The Thing About Art, See, a showcase produced by the D’amby Project, on September 2 and 3, 2016 at 8pm and September 4, 2016 at 3pm at The CENTER for Performing Arts at Rhineback in the beautiful Hudson Valley. This annual showcase, featuring dancers from the D’amby Project, brings both local, regional and international choreographers together to create an eclectic & cohesive evening of professional dance. The D’amby Project is made up of artists and collaborators from around the world who gather to explore the gray matter that exists between genres within the arts. The common product of the project is dance material, reflective of principle roots in non-classical training. Company dancers are predominantly trained in Irish Dance, but also perform movement that adheres to a more contemporary aesthetic. The rigor of an Irish dancer can be found in the sharp articulation of our movements, with emphasis on accuracy and unison. By adding breath and life-bearing musicality, we create a new vocabulary, and a unique combination of quiet control and nuance.
This year the D’amby Project is thrilled to be working with Nai-Ni Chen, and exploring such a beautiful, strong, and nuanced style of movement. The show will feature styles such as classic jazz, contemporary, and traditional Irish dance to name a few. Tickets are on sale now for $22-$24, and can be purchased online at http://www.centerforperformingarts.org/dance/ or by calling the box office at (845) 876-3080.
