Into the Wave - An Up Close and Personal Experience with the Artist, Her Dancers and Dance Works

The Long Beach Island Foundation of the Arts & Sciences, 120 Long Beach Blvd, Loveladies, NJ, 08008

Dive In! In this intimate evening of performance and conversation, the company will present selections from some of its signature works as Carolyn Dorfman shares her inspiration and process for the works presented, including:

PRIMA!, a vibrant new work featuring the robust, driving, and buoyant sound of legendary jazz musician, Louis Prima, and his band; with the powerful, virtuosic, and expressive voices of Prima’s female lead jazz singers, Gia Maione Prima and Keely Smith;

Mayne Mentshn (My People), Dorfman’s soulful, inspiring tribute to her family that celebrates her Eastern European Jewish roots through music, gesture, ritual, character, and more;

And WAVES, a sonically eclectic celebration of movement and sound with music by cellist Jessie Reagen Mann, multi-instrumentalist and human beat boxer Pete List and recorder player Daphna Mor.

The evening includes a post-show discussion and a meet and greet with the artists. Dive in! Be inspired and thrilled by this bold, athletic, “no-holds-barred” event. Doors will open at 6:30 pm, performance starts at 7:00 pm.
