ZviDance Presents The World Premieres Of BEAR'S EARS & DETOUR At New York Live Arts
ZVIDANCE presents the World Premieres of BEAR'S EARS and DETOUR at New York Live Arts, 219 W 19th Street, NYC from December 19-22, 2018. Performances: Wednesday at 7:30pm (gala performance, $100, www.zvidance.com/tickets/), Thursday and Friday at 7:30pm; and Saturday at 2pm and 7:30pm. Tickets are $25 ($20 for students and seniors), and can be purchased online at https://newyorklivearts.org/event/bears-ears-detour/.
Bear's Ears aims to raise awareness of the current controversy surrounding Bear's Ears National Monument in Southern Utah. While designated as a National Monument by President Obama, Bear's Ears is now a symbol of the American Indian's struggle due to the current Administration's attempts to reverse Obama's designation. Detour reflects on the longer, less direct way to get one from here to there.
Zvi Gotheiner is praised for a signature innovative style and fascinating melding of artistic mediums, his work is recognized as radical, contemporary dance theater, ground-breaking, thoughtful yet passionate, with lush movement. ZviDance's renowned creative team includes composers Scott Killian, Media designers Josh Higgason, lighting designer Mark London and ZviDance's eight athletic and expressive dancers.
"One does not just watch a dance by Zvi Gotheiner. One enters a world with its own internal logic, a sensual, organic world of movement, language, and images where one is pulled along by currents unseen and inevitable." - Dance Magazine
ZviDance exists to share with audiences the choreographic vision and movement vocabulary of Israeli-born Artistic Director, Zvi Gotheiner. Each piece defines a unique set of relationships and experiences, boldly addressing the depths of the human experience. ZviDance also exists to engage students in enriching their appreciation of the art form.
ZviDance brings its audiences a passionate vision of community in a modern age. A collaborative alliance among artists, the company's stirring work celebrates diversity by melding movement genres into the distinct dance vocabulary constantly evolving and refusing to succumb to dialectics of the medium. The company is shaped by a collaborative model of creation, involving the ensemble and designers from the initial research phase, so as to constantly push the methodology and ethics of a creation process within an inter-disciplinary format.
In the last 25 years of existence, ZviDance has received critical praise and stable funding for its artistic projects, a work that fearlessly refuses to be bounded to specific thematic or aesthetic dogma. The company performs frequently at home in such New York venues as the Brooklyn Academy Of Music (BAM), Joyce Theater, New York Live Arts and Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors. ZviDance has toured across North America to festivals such as Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival and The American Dance Festival, and abroad to Germany, Poland, Russia, Israel, Colombia, Brazil, Ecuador and Japan.
