BWW Reviews: Companies Compete for an Evening Length Production at DanceNow Festival at Joe's Pub
by Stephanie Deere - Oct 15, 2013

Thursday evening's DanceNow Festival at Joe's Pub, October 10th, 2013, was an evening teaming with glamour. Down-turned lights, delectable food, fine drinks, and all eyes glued to the small stage on which ten companies performed, separately, five minutes of uniquely prepared work. With the exception of Take Dance, who opened the show with an excerpt from SOMEWHERE FAMILIAR MELODIES, a commissioned work by Joe's Pub in 2013, the artists had to use their five minutes to capture the audience with a well-rounded and completed theme. At the end of the show, the audience was then asked to vote. Who among these nine companies would be the winner of an evening length work presented by Joe's Pub in 2015? I certainly have my own opinions. (more...)
