Jersey Moves! Festival of Dance: Nimbus Dance Works
The Jersey City-based Nimbus Dance Works has been called "gorgeous (and) exquisite" by Broadway World, and was included among the “Best Dance Performances of 2016" by The Huffington Post.
Nimbus Dance Works focuses on the intersection between professional dance and innovative ways of involving communities and audiences. The company presents works choreographed by artistic director Samuel Pott as well as commissions by leading international dancemakers.
As part of this year’s Jersey Moves! Festival of Dance, Nimbus will bring two signature works: Esther, an edgy, multidisciplinary retelling of the Old Testament tale of gender, power and seduction, created in collaboration with Brooklyn-based indie rock band Sky Pony; and Memo, an exploration of collective and personal memory, set to music by Antonín Dvořák, George Rochberg and Ernest Bloch. For this performance of Memo, a work woven in real time with written recollections provided by the audience, Nimbus will be joined by young dancers from Newark Arts High School.
This performance is presented at NJPAC in association with the Clement A. Price Institute on Ethnicity, Culture & the Modern Experience at Rutgers University-Newark.
