Celebrating women in dance

Reviewing a 2007 concert of work by choreographer Pam Tanowitz, I noted that,
"[Tanowitz] makes ballet-modern dance hybrids–an effort not unique to her but one that she achieves with uncommon grace and gusto. Balletic movements, performed with affectionate care and not in jest, might look exotic on the modern dance stage, but they are simply as valid as anything else in Tanowitz’s overall scheme. She is a garrulous, multilingual poet of the art of dance...."

See Tanowitz's latest--the world premiere of Recorded forever in between the cracks with real passion--on the special, one-night-only presentation of Working Women at the Gotham Dance Festival at The Joyce Theater, Tuesday, June 5 (7:30pm).

Showcasing work by contemporary American women dancemakers, this concert will benefit programs of the Gotham Arts Exchange. In addition to Tanowitz, the artists include Kate Weare (The Light Has Not The Arms to Carry Us), Camille A. Brown (solo from Mr. Tol E. Rance), Carolyn Dorfman (Keystone), Loni Landon (Don’t Forget to Go Home, a world premiere), Jodie Gates (duet from Delicate Balance), Jane Comfort (excerpt from Beauty) and Monica Bill Barnes (excerpt of Love, Oh Love).

Regular tickets start at $10. Premium seating ($100 and $75) for Working Women includes center orchestra seats and a special post show reception with the artists.
