New York Live Arts is a fabulous organization created by living legend Bill T. Jones which, until recently, focused almost exclusively on modern dance endeavors. This Fall, they are launching a brand-new new music series called Come Around, and we are pumped to be the first ever ensemble-in-residence!
What does this mean? It means we are commissioning and premiering a whopping SIX NEW WORKS, culminating this December with a half-evening length work by Marcos Balter, which will be choreographed and danced by Bill T. Jones and Dianne McIntyre!!
We are deeply excited for this residency, and particularly excited to share our progress with you, as we dive into a whole new pile of exciting rep. Also? It gives us a lovely reason to take a break from touring and spend some quality time at home in our great city, trying out some great new stuff for our friends.
We’ve never done anything quite like this before, so pick up your tickets and come hang out!!
