Join us for an evening of contemporary dance featuring ClancyWorks Dance Company and Left Side Labs.

Special to this evening’s collaboration is a long-standing history of these dance makers working together to support one another’s vision. Within the framework of a true 21st century arts ecosystem, in which strong partnerships allow resources to be extended, these choreographers are interested in contributing to a cause larger than their own.

ClancyWorks Dance Company, based in the Washington, D.C. enters our 16th season of presenting award winning dances that shift perceptions through performance to advance positive social action. Under the direction of Dr. Adrienne Clancy, ClancyWorks has been touted by the Washington Post as “a tour de force of unpredictable partnering” and has earned a reputation for nuanced partnering work that is simultaneously athletically physical and philosophically driven by questions. “When Adrienne Clancy hits a wall, literally or figuratively, she doesn’t retreat. She climbs it.” (Washington Post).

Left Side Labs, co-founded by NYC-based choreographers Mathew Heggem & Emma Batman, will present their inaugural work “One Steps Two Flood,” as part of the launch for their new dance company. A brain-child of two long-time collaborators, their mission is to generate new dance content and opportunities within the creative community. For over 10 years, they’ve presented their work at such venues as Dixon Place, The Tank, Dance Theater Workshop, the New Dance Alliance’s ‘Performance Mix Festival'; and most recently Brooklyn’s Dumbo Dance Festival.
