Jersey Moves! Festival of Dance: Carolyn Dorfman Dance

Carolyn Dorfman Dance celebrates 35 years of acclaimed dancemaking with a program that includes signature works as well as a new dance created with Renée Jaworski of Pilobolus.

Be Part of the Movement: Celebrate Carolyn Dorfman Dance and 35 years of bold, powerful, and thrilling performances, dance-making and dance education! The company’s stunning dancers immerse body and soul into the high-energy and technically demanding dance, for which the company is acclaimed. The performance features the world premiere of a ground-breaking collaboration between Dorfman and Renée Jaworski, Co-Artistic Director of the internationally renowned, PILOBOLUS.

With its rich repertory history, the company revives Dorfman’s powerful LIFELINE (1987).  

 “The tension from the ropes and the interconnectedness of the dancers make a strong and exciting statement about the bonds that join individuals across generations” (The New York Times).  Dorfman’s CERCLE D’AMOUR jubilantly completes the program.  “… compelling symbolism … Much more than a toy that inspires scampering fun … the hula hoops become mesmerizing objects as they spin in circles filled with kinetic energy” (The Star-Ledger).

This engagement is presented as part of NJPAC’s Jersey Moves! Festival of Dance.
