El Salvador (2018)
In May 2018, DDD traveled to El Salvador to lead a series of Violence Prevention Workshops sponsored by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and Glasswing International.
We visited San Salvador and worked with youth who are dedicated to using their bodies for peace rather than war.
metamorphosis festival (3 works, 2016)
All performances were outdoors and part of Metamorphosis, a four-day free festival attended by 115,000 people at the new Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center – park and buildings designed by Renzo Piano. http://www.snfcc.org/metamorphosis/en/
DDD performed a customized version of our “Athletes Project”, a dance DDD has created many times over the years. This was unique in that the cast was a lovely mix of Greek Special Olympians, Greek Dancer/Athletes (including an award-winning couple who dazzled with an amazing Salsa routine) and DDD.
Additionally, the company performed in the spectacular Lighthouse Terrace, at the top of the park, overlooking the Aegean and the Acropolis.
We also collaborated with Cerebral Palsy Greece.
INDECENT, created by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel and award-winning director Rebecca Taichman, is a deeply moving play with music, inspired by the true events surrounding the controversial 1923 Broadway debut of Sholem Asch’s GOD OF VENGEANCE — a play seen by some as a seminal work of Jewish culture, and by others as an act of traitorous libel. INDECENT charts the history of an incendiary drama and the path of the artists who risked their careers and lives to perform it.
Choreography by David Dorfman. David Dorfman received the “Outstanding Choreography” Lortel Award and a Chita Rivera Nomination.
met breuer (2016)
David Dorfman Dance performed at the grand opening of the Met Breuer on March 18, 2016.
The Met invited the public to celebrate the opening of The Met Breuer with three days of special programs and extended hours for the public to experience the Museum’s new space dedicated to modern and contemporary art at all three of its locations. The 15-minute site-specific featured performance by David Dorfman Dance took place five times throughout the day. It also featured an original score by Ken Thomson performed live by musicians from Asphalt Orchestra and Dither.
