DANCE NOW’s 25th anniversary celebration continues with the DANCE NOW Story featuring on-demand performances of new and archival digital works by more than 40 innovative dance makers as well as live events with DN artists via Zoom. All events are available through June 2021 on DANCE NOW’s digital platform, dancenow.online.
DANCE NOW has reimagined its signature festival, normally held at Joe’s Pub, creating an alternative digital space at dancenow.online to celebrate its artists and this landmark anniversary. The series brings new, emerging, and longtime veterans of the Festival together to honor DANCE NOW’s past, embrace the present, and explore future possibilities for artists and audiences alike. The digital series is accompanied by an interactive timeline featuring photos, videos, interviews, and additional facets of the DANCE NOW Story.
Chapter 6 (Release: Thursday, May 6 / Watch Party on Zoom at 6pm) will feature commissioned works by Sarah Chien, Kayla Farrish, and Joshua L. Peugh and archival works by John Heginbotham and Paula Josa-Jones. The Artist-to-Audience Celebration on Thursday, May 27, at 7pm, will honor The Bang Group. The celebratory evening, hosted by Larry Keigwin and Nicole Wolcott, will feature special performances and audience interaction recreating the intimate atmosphere of Joe’s Pub.
