The Carolyn Dorfman Dance Company is launching a series of events in celebration of its 30th season, commencing with a family fun performance at the Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown, N.J. on Sunday, October 21 at 3:00 p.m.
As part of its “Backstage Pass” performances, the audience will be treated to an interactive afternoon with Carolyn and the dancers while experiencing several of CDDC’s well known works to include:
- Keystone — Set to classic songs by Rufus Wainwright, Louis Armstrong, and Jamie Randolph, Keystone is a duet that explores the endurance of relationships and the concept of staying power in a world that continues to embrace fast digital communication that is not aligned with the human pulse or true intimacy.
- Cercle d’Amour — Cercle d’Amour opens a dialogue on love that invites audiences to think, laugh, and enjoy and explores the visual and movement metaphors evoked by a resonant and versatile prop — brilliant red hula-hoops. Featuring music by Andy Tierstein, this ensemble work illuminates various aspects of relationships including play, competition, and fantasy.
- Narcoleptic Lovers — Narcoleptic Lovers was originally choreographed in 1995 by the talented and witty Doug Elkins, who described it as a series of letters to former lovers. Using his signature eclectic movement vocabulary, the work draws on modern, hip-hop, ballet and martial arts with an equally broad range of music – Mozart, hip-hop by Urban Species and spoken word samples of Lenny Bruce.
This will be a narrated performance by Ms. Dorfman and the audience will have the opportunity to engage with the dancers as well.
