Gibney Dance Company-Curated Performance

ColemanCollective, MADBOOTS, and Manuel Vignoulle

Curated by Gibney Dance Company

This Gibney Dance Company curated performance is an outlet for diverse choreographers who share the values of the Company’s unique model, viewing dance artists as innovators, generators, and activists. We will be presenting 'Retrograde: The American story through the eyes of…'. This work reveals several perspectives on cultural appropriation, and is filled with emotionally opaque images along with ironic commentary on the effect that slavery, segregation, and general racism have had on the Black American narrative. It describes the correlation between past and future, and hopes to inspire audiences to expand on the conversation and research of culture/ancestry, to learn from history and make it relevant for personal as well as social change.

15th Annual Richmond Choreographer’s Showcase

For 15 years the Richmond Annual Choreographers Showcase has been bringing established and emerging choreographers to Richmond, Virginia and has continually been the only dance festival on the east coast that provides support for new works by dance artists. Through an adjudication process, the choreographers are selected for the Showcase with the ultimate goal of providing three performances of eclectic and engaging dance works in one weekend.

Produced by Starr Foster Dance Project, admission to the Showcase is set at the low cost of $10 to encourage the general public to come out, experience and support the performing arts. It is our goal to recognize and promote other dance companies and expose them to the flourishing dance scene in Richmond.

Incriminate the Itimate

Jerome AB & Gina Chiappetta are co-curating this month’s Dance Art Video Screening

 “Incriminate the Intimate."

The focus of this screening pertains to themes Jerome & Gina explore as collaborators — blurring dichotomies of tenderness & aggression, care & violence, sentiment & apathy, private & public. This screening serves to expand this dialogue — unveiling vulnerable crevices that lay between so-called polarities.

This festival will feature ColemanCollective's "REACT/Reaction"

Dances By Dancers @ NYU Tisch

The Premiere of Coleman Collectives new work, 'RETROGRADE'.

"RETROGRADE reveals several perspectives on cultural appropriation, and is filled with emotionally opaque images and ironic commentary on the effect that slavery, segregation, and racism has had on the African American narrative.  This project hopes to inspire audiences to expand on the conversation on culture and ancestry, learning from the history within their surroundings.


          Appropriation commercializes culture, trivializes our struggles, and perpetuates stereotypes. By blurring the lines between past and present, RETROGRADE aims to lead the audience through an experience of black accomplishments, obstacles and contributions.  
     
          The creative process for this particular piece has also served as a heritage study for each collaborator. We plan to bridge the gap between history and art by honoring and honing in on topics that have shaped us into individuals.
