First day of continued artistic cultural exchange.

As a continuation of the exchange, started this summer, with NYC Valerie Green/Dance Entropy , Maria will work with the companys dancers for 9 days and 40 hours.

“Home” (working title) is an international collaboration between Dance Entropy and choreographers from various diverse countries. The concept is to approach the idea of home on Dance Entropy company members from unique perspectives, based on each choreographers’ individual idea of what home means to them. The idea of home is intentionally broad, and could be inspired from many different angles. Co-choreographers hail from Sweden, India, Lebanon, and countries in South America and Africa.

The choreographers are invited to NYC to work with the dancers in 2-week intensive periods, to be followed by a performance showing. Each choreographer will create their own section on the dancers. After the completion of the final intensive period, Artistic Director Valerie Green will then mold and thread together the entire work into one complete, cohesive work of dance art, to premiere in 2020.

The result will be presented at Take Root@Green Space in New York on the 18-19 October.

The evening will also present a new work by NYC choreographer Petra van Noort http://www.petranyc.comas well as a solo choreography, A Toast to absent friends Choreographed by Maria Naidu 2009. Tickets and more information can be found at:
