Join us at NJPAC for our annual Performance and Gala benefit.
The evening features:
Carolyn Dorfman Dance and the incomparable storyteller, narrator, and librettist Charlotte Blake Alston in DANCE/STORIES, an enchanting interdisciplinary collaboration featuring a selection of folk tales and authentic stories from around the world. The commissioned score is by jazz composer Horacee Arnold and new lighting design is by Scott Nelson. Interweaving thought provoking choreography with the power of the spoken word, Dorfman magically turns to the earth’s oldest art form – storytelling– into a moving tapestry that “bathes the senses and the soul”.
The return of Dorfman’s acclaimed, SEXTET, with a powerful and driving score by jazz composer Horacee Arnold. This dance explores the energy, rhythm, and power of six dancers as they connect, divide and regroup. “Kinetic angels, innocent of gravity’s mortal tug… They fly deft and agile, through fast shifting shapes riding the current of movement.”- Dance Magazine
The World Premiere of UNFOLDING, a new work by principal dancer. Ae-Soon Kim. In her work for five dancers, Kim and composer Greg Wall combine live Korean drumming with an electronic score to explore her roots on three continents: Asia, Europe, and America.
