Suzanne Beahrs has been called a “rising name” by the New York Times.
Well, on August 16th you will have the chance to view this rising name’s piece of work. So, what is Suzanne Beahrs Dance all about? This company is all about investigating & celebrating the impermanent human experience through kinetically driven modern dance. This means teasing out every ounce of juice in the present moment, being connected to one another and ourselves.
Excerpts of Suzanne Beahrs work ,”Amid,” a celebration of the exquisite power in our broken, impermanent selves, have been presented at Judson Church, Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, Gibney Dance Center, Dance New Amsterdam, Cora Dance, and in outdoor parks around NYC.
However, you will have a chance to view this full piece at the 7:30 PM BCDF National Showcase. Siobhan Burke of The New York Times explains what is so appealing about the work,
“The most appealing aspect of Amid was the internal rhythm and grounded, silken quality shared by the [dancers]… Observing their connectedness, the kinesthetic equivalent of friends who can finish each other’s sentences, you got the sense that they had been dancing together for a very long time.”
Beahrs explains what an opportunity BCDF is for her & the company, “For us BCDF is a tremendous opportunity to take a first tour to a cool city that is relatively close to our home in NYC. It’s also working so well because of all of the other dancing happening nearby. I’ll be teaching at Green Street Studios on August 16 1-3 pm and we’re performing at Built on Stilts in Martha’s Vineyard on August 17 and in Easton on August 14. None of this would have happened for us if we weren’t first accepted to this festival.” Well, here at BCDF we are excited Suzanne Beahrs Dance was accepted to present work at the National Showcase!
