Premiere

July 28th, 2008, The Joyce Theater

Elements was made possible by the generous support of The Greenwall Foundation, Dianne & Daniel Vapnek Family Fund, Royce Family Fund,  and the Christian Keesee Charitable Trust. It was commissioned by the Florida Dance Festival and Bates Dance Festival through a grant from the National Performance Network’s Creation Fund Program.  Elements was also supported in part by the American Dance Festival with support from the Doris Duke/SHS Foundations Awards for New Work.
 

“Though the dances are brief and funny, they have a deeply satisfying physicality.”
