Performance Mix Review in Dancing Perfectly Free

“The New Dance Alliance (NDA) took over Joyce SoHo last week for its 24th annual Performance Mix Festival, which brought together over thirty dance, music, video, and interdisciplinary artists from the US and abroad.  The festival, produced and curated by NDA Director Karen Bernard, supports emerging artists by providing them with performance opportunities, rehearsal space, and career development residencies.  Thursday evening’s lineup offered typical results of the festival format – some good, some bad – but it was an eclectic group of performers who showed an impressive range of styles and themes … Adding choreography to the narration, David [Dianna David of DubD Productions] proved to be an exceptionally talented dancer, mime, and actress, portraying all of the youthful angst of a child desperate to attend one of Jackson’s concerts back in 1984.  The work was humorous, touching, and an original way to honor a musical idol.”
