Explore DDD’s latest work-in-progress

Where do our minds and spirits travel when the weight of everyday life becomes an unbearable load to carry?

A(Way) Out of My Body is DDD’s newest evening-length work and first-time collaboration between Obie-Award winning, interactive-electronics artist Andrew Schneider. The piece investigates out-of-body experiences as related to intergenerational trauma, and the mental burden and physical impact of surviving personal adversity. 

DDD weaves together movement, technology, theater and live music composed and performed by the David Dorfman Dance Band, featuring Sam Crawford, Liz de Lise, Jeff Hudgins, and Zeb Gould. A(Way) Out of My Body takes audience members on an exploration of their own resilience and capacity for joy when overcoming physical and societal limitations. 

A(Way) Out of My Body, premiering in 2020, represents a new era for the company as it enters its 4th decade of making dances. Always lauded as making “full throttle, big-hearted” choreography, 63-year old David Dorfman sets out to make his most personal work yet.

A(Way) Out of My Body was created in part during residencies at Connecticut College, Dancers’ Workshop, Lake Placid Center for the Arts, Ohio University’s Summer Dance Institute, and the Tisch Summer Residency Festival at New York University.
