Doug Varone and Dancers
Brenda Angiel Aerial Dance Company
Students experience cross-cultural exchange in action in this dance performance, a collaboration between an Argentine troupe and a renowned New York dance company. Doug Varone and Dancers partnered with Brenda Angiel Aerial Dance Company as part of its DanceMotion USASM cultural diplomacy tour of South America. Now, in addition to performing works from their own repertories, the companies will present an entirely new piece that they have created together that melds two movement languages: choreographer Varone’s explosive style and Angiel’s sweeping airborne dance.
The live performance of DanceMotion is sold out, but you can still register to watch a rehearsal and the performance live online. See more info in Related Content below.
Watch the collaborative performance carefully. How have the physical vocabularies of both cultures combined to create new movement ideas?
