92Y Harkness Dance Festival is a five-week performance festival (Feb 22-Mar 24, 2013) featuring the finest in innovative dance.
How do artists create dance? This season’s Harkness Dance Festival takes you deep inside the creative process in its innovative Stripped/Dressed series, curated by Doug Varone. Our five festival artists, each with widely differing approaches to choreography, demystify the process. First, the artists discuss their inspiration—showing excerpts and talking with collaborators—all in an informal, stripped setting, with no lights or costumes. In the second part of the evening the artists present the same work entirely dressed in its completed theatrical form.
