Lance Gries: The FIFTY Project

March 27 – March 31, 2013


For his fiftieth birthday, Lance Gries invited FIFTY dance colleagues, from a twenty- five year career span, from all over the world, to meet him in a studio for a FIFTY minute dance encounter.  The intimacy, immediacy and vulnerability of some of the most beloved dancers and choreographers from New York and Europe is captured in these  edited studio sessions. These FIFTY video documents will be presented in a multi- dimensional immersive installation, a visual moving family tree of the New York dance community in  a mass choreography of images, personal stories and dancing bodies.

Gallery Hours: Wed-Sat: 1-4:30pm

During Galleria hours we will be projecting hourly, side by side, two full length FIFTY dance sessions in a double duet image, featuring:

Wednesday March 27        K. J. Holmes and Paul Langland
Thursday March 28             Diane Madden and John Jasperse
Friday March 29                   Jodi Melnick and Jimena Paz
Saturday March 30              Jeanine Durning and Ralph Lemon
