Nancy Havlik Dance Performance Group Takes Flight
at Dance Exchange’s newly renovated performance space
Nancy Havlik Dance Performance Group’s new performance Taking Flight is a program of three dance theater pieces, which will be taking place at Dance Exchange’s newly renovated Studio Theater space.
Taking Flight will be performed on June 23, 2012 at 8pm at Dance Exchange, 7117 Maple Avenue, Takoma Park, MD.
Nancy Havlik Dance Performance Group’s new performance includes the three pieces: Silence is as Varied as Snow, Outside/In and a new work Tracking the Tornados.
Silence Is As Varied As Snow was inspired by and devised as a response to John Cage’s fascination with silence as a tribute in his birthday centenary. The piece explores the dynamics inherent in silence as latent sound. It premiered in April at Woolly Mammoth’s studio space.
Outside/In is a short piece for four dancers, which wryly observes the urban ‘camaraderie’ in affecting not to notice one another.
Tracking the Tornados is a new ensemble work improvised in close collaboration with musicians Daniel Barbiero (double bass) and Nguyen Khoi Nguyen (keyboard and vocals).
The studio space at Dance Exchange has been newly converted to a versatile ‘black box’ performance space. Building Manager Brian Buck is delighted to have been instrumental in giving local DC choreographers a new intimate performance space to showcase their work.
