This performance of Showgirls is the culmination of Karen Bernard’s spring residency at BkSD. Karen is known for creating a storm of references on the body. In Showgirls, she delves into a delicious deconstruction of glamour in decline. Using evocative imagery of a crumbling Venice juxtaposed with sumptuously adorned dancers in high heels who strut their stuff unapologetically, Bernard orchestrates a visually rich and thought provoking performance that swirls around the audience. Bernard’s Showgirls recognize their imperfections and deny those of the world around them, creating an emotionally charged and complex vision of nostalgia. Read more

Workshop with João Costa Espinho

Friday, June 8 | 11:30 AM

Following Breakfast Mix, Portuguese-born, France-based dancer/choreographer João Costa Espinho leads a workshop that focuses on the anatomy of the body as both matter and energy and how this amplifies our individual bodies’ existent micro-movements in a shared space.

The method: Work from the organic movement of each participant, let our individual energies be traversed by other bodies seeking a collective body, using those revealed movements in a dynamic and transformative process.

This event also takes place at New Dance Alliance (182 Duane Street, Tribeca) and is free with RSVP to newdancealliance@gmail.com.

New Dance Alliance is looking for your support to continue promoting and providing resources to experimental performance artists.

We believe:

  • All voices need to be heard—the alternative and the new, those pushing boundaries and defining fresh genres and those who have made a difference historically.
  • Art allows us to see things in new contexts.
  • Experimentation and collaboration support greater understanding.
  • A single voice can provide inspiration for others.
