Join us for an exciting, heartfelt, and long overdue evening of dance, including the world premiere of our newest work, Imagined Warmth. Created over the tumultuous past 18 months, during periods of isolation, distancing, and finally, reconnection, Imagined Warmth brings to life the vast range of emotional experiences felt by our company and the rest of the country. A collection of reactions and feelings turned into solid, moving bodies, this work will serve as validation, catharsis, and a communal laugh-cry of recognition at the audacious impact of the pandemic.
Included in this program are excerpts from NJD’s oldest piece of repertory, AGEN, that fit beautifully into the topic of enduring, coping and connecting. Finally, another new work by Natalie, Cocoon, will be danced by former NJD member and Guest Artist, Lea D’Arminio. Lea will perform a visceral and empowering solo created during our shared time of confusion, grieving, and overcoming.
