We’re thrilled to announce the premiere on Alone/Together – a new video work created in collaboration with the Ballet of National Theater Sarajevo and composer Svjetlana Bukvich.

In this time of great uncertainty and physical distancing, two artistic friends reached across thousands of miles to create a work that reinforces the unifying power of dance and the triumph of the human spirit. Carolyn Dorfman and Belma Čečo Bakrač, the ballet choreographer of the Ballet of National Theater Sarajevo, have asked their dancers to work with each other to choreograph a piece that celebrates their common bond.  Alone/Together also features music by contemporary Sarajevo composer Svjetlana Bukvich, who has composed two other Carolyn Dorfman Dance works.
