Choreographer Laura Shapiro observes 9/11

Choreographer Laura Shapiro just sent in this note of invitation:
Dear All,

Dance New Amsterdam is having a Day of Remembrance and Reflection for the dance community on September 11, 2011. DVD of the performance of
Clear Skies, Sun Shining, a piece for five dancers that premiered on September 11, 2009, will be screened there.

I am grateful to Uttara Asha Coorlawala, Tatyana Kot-Diaz, Ingrid Kullberg-Bendz, Trayer Run-kowzun and Mari Sakahara, the performers who journeyed with me in the creation of the piece as well as to cellist Madeleine Shapiro (no relation) through whom I found Matthew Burtner's
Fragments from Cold (for cello and electronics), a recording of which became the sound score for the piece (with Shapiro on cello); and to NYFA for providing me with a Special Opportunity Grant to support the performance of the piece.

Wishing you a peaceful weekend,
Dance New Amsterdam
280 Broadway, 2nd Floor (entrance on Chambers Street), Manhattan
212-625-8369 or
(map and directions)
