Battery Dance 40th Anniversary Season | May 11 & 12, 2016….
Battery Dance, New York City’s cultural ambassador to the world, celebrates its 40th Anniversary with performances highlighting the depth of its international experiences and the artistry of its dancers, enriched by guest choreographers and dancers from India, Slovenia and South Africa.
The Durga Project–a world premiere directed by Jonathan Hollander, weaves together the movement vocabularies, sonorities and aesthetics of the U.S. and India. The concept of Durga, or Shakti, the power and energy and magnificence of womanhood, underlies and informs the piece. Inter/Ago by Tadej Brdnik, Observatory by Theo Ndindwa and an invocation by Unnath H.R. complete the program.
