FAMILY PROGRAMMING

 

Chiquita Chiquita

Chiquita Chiquita is a humorously absurd performance, manipulating and transforming a multiplicity of props used in unexpected ways.  This colorful work, full of surprises, is accompanied by retro-exotica lounge music.

Premiered at LaGuardia Performing Arts Center, New York City, December 2008


Dandia

Dandia, constructed for use in our young audience’s program, is based on the Indian folk dance of the same name. This upbeat work utilizes percussion through wooden sticks throughout and concludes with audience participation at the end.

Artistic Director Valerie Green learned this dance in India during a teaching residency in 2009.


Splash!

SPLASH! is a site-specific outdoors dance incorporating brightly colored buckets filled with water.  This dance is a structured improvisation to an exciting collage of music about water. Splash is a great crowd pleaser and tons of fun!  Splash can be performed in many types of outdoor venues.

Premiered at Dance Now, Carmine Pool, New York City, 2003

Immeasurable
