Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, will present Affront, a quartet that explores the tipping point when intimacy crosses into violence, peeking into the darker side of relationships and the pressures, dangers, and abuses that can arise. The movement language alternates between relaxed pedestrianism and razor-sharp precision.

The acclaimed Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company, celebrating its 20th Anniversary in 2018, is known for its playful virtuosity, musicality, accessibility and charisma. “A troupe I’d follow anywhere” (The Village Voice), a “troupe of fabulous dancers” (Back Stage) that “can’t help but smile” (The New Yorker). The nonprofit has partnered with various institutions since its inception in 1998 demonstrating a commitment to education through multigenerational interactive programming. Highlights include performances at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Bryant Park, La MaMa, Jazz at Lincoln Center, and the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and residencies in France, Spain, Greece, Finland and Brazil. The Company produces dance films and has enjoyed screenings nationally and internationally.
