Just like the song sings it, the city that never sleeps welcomed us with the most eclectic painting of sounds, smells, colors and movements. Everything was a source of inspiration in this cultural babel.
Experimentation has become core to New York’s arts scene, and this involved dancing too. The metropolis displays everything on the menu: from classical ballet and musicals, to contemporary, church-danced expressions. Choreo Dep’s team has seen it all during a short visit to Manhattan this March.
We’ve had the pleasure (and dare to say, honor) to visit New York City Ballet both during a guided tour and a special evening performance of Sara Mearns (interpreting Isadora Duncan). Our visit continued with The Church danspace project, a hip home for contemporary dance and experimentation in Greenwich.
This trip was truly transformative, while what we mostly learned is that you always have to say it twice: New York, New York. Once for getting there and twice for returning. And our team has now wonderful things to prepare after this short, but fruitful visit.
