Redfern Series: David Dorfman Dance

Thursday -

Join David Dorfman and the artists of David Dorfman Dance for a behind-the-scenes look at the process of creating (A)Way Out of My Body. The piece uses “out of body” experiences as a metaphor for our times with dancers propelling themselves through space and time, attempting to pass the barrier of reality and plight into the realm of positivity and growth.

The evening, seen through the lens of recorded rehearsals and performances, is punctuated with live and recorded conversation by the artists who created the work over a 3-year period which culminated with its premiere in February 2021 - one month before the world shut down. 

This evening will be performed through Livestream with no in person audience and opportunity for audience to ask questions of the artists.

For 33 years David Dorfman Dance has created movement that seeks to de-stigmatize the notion of accessibility and interaction in post-modern dance by embracing audiences with visceral, meaningful dance, music and text. By sustaining a vision to create innovative, inclusive, movement-based performance that is radically humanistic, DDD maintains a core commitment to examine and unearth issues and ideas that enliven, incite, and excite audiences in dialogue and debate about social change and a myriad of other topics. In advocating his mission “to get the whole world dancing,” Dorfman’s work has enjoyed broad and diverse audiences nationally and internationally.

DDD has performed extensively throughout North and South America, Great Britain, Europe, and Central Asia. DDD has regularly performed in New York City at major venues including The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), The Joyce Theater, The Kitchen, Danspace Project/St. Mark’s Church, La Mama Theater, The Duke on 42nd Street, The Met Breuer, and the 92nd St. “Y”/Harkness Dance Festival. *David Dorfman, the company’s dancers, and DDD’s artistic collaborators have also been honored with eight New York Dance and Performance (Bessie) Awards.
