Join us for GDC’s Opening Night and toast to the kick-off of the 2019-2020 Season! We invite you to the first look at BOTH/AND, featuring new works by Stefanie Batten Bland and Peter Chu. Before the show, meet and hear from the choreographers in addition to GDC Founder, CEO and Artistic Director Gina Gibney. Top off the evening at the after-party—complete with drinks, dessert, and dancing with the GDC Artistic Associates themselves!

6:45 – 7:30 pm: VIP Pre-Show Reception
7:30 – 9:00 pm: Performance
9:00 – 9:45 pm: After Party

*$100 VIP Ticket includes the VIP Pre-Show Reception in addition to the Opening Night Performance and After Party. $60 Ticket includes the Opening Night Performance and After Party.

Thank you for your support of GDC’s event of the year!

BOTH/AND features two world premieres: Stefanie Batten Bland’s 5 St. Fifperhanway Place Apt 2A and Peter Chu’s Forming Out. The two GDC Guest Choreographers will work with the company this fall to develop the works, which will explore the many nuanced layers of this universal theme. Tickets to the Nov. 15 & 16 performances of BOTH/AND are available here.
