22-02-2019 12:00:00 23-02-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York Intersections: Celebrating 20 Years of Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company Intersections, Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company’s 20th Anniversary New York season and newest dance, marks a continuum of two decades of innovative dance production without pause. The Company is known for its playful virtuosity, accessibility and charisma. “A troupe I’d follow anywhere” (The Village Voice), a “troupe of fabulous dancers” (Backstage) that “can’t help but smile” (The New Yorker). “The dancers are flawless and picture perfect too” (Show Business). The celebratory season brings back favorite dancers and dances. With a trademark blend of humor, musicality and inventiveness, Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company provokes and entertains. This milestone season celebrates twenty years of superlative dance performed by a diverse cast of exemplary longtime Company dancers including Stacy Martorana, Christian von Howard, Jason Garcia Ignacio, Derek Crescenti, Oren Barnoy, Vanessa Martinez de Banos, Lauren Kravitz, and the dancer who’s been with the Company the longest, Daniel Gwirtzman. Sifting through twenty years of repertory Daniel, the Company’s choreographer, has culled classic dances and crafted these alongside a premiere, Intersections, into a program-length dance in the spirit of a Merce Cunningham Event. Less retrospective than future-focused, dances have been recontextualized and reimagined. The program confirms the optimism for which the Company is known, while depicting sobering, harsh, portraits of today’s ill society. The good, the bad, and the ugly. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=347037 92nd Street Y 92nd Street Y
