Kizuna Dance presents both full works and excerpts from pieces in its current touring cycle, all inspired by aspects of the Japanese culture. The works span the company’s four year history and are rooted in topics such as Buddhism, salarymen, the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, and the visual art of Manabu Ikeda.
No RSVP required. Blankets preferred, limited lawn chair space. Enjoy live performance against the backdrop of the Manhattan skyline. View map.
Kizuna Dance blends streetdance with contemporary floorwork to create works that celebrate the Japanese culture. The company has performed nationally and internationally at prestigious institutions and festivals such as The Japan Society, Performatica, the LDIF Festival, Gibney Dance, and Movement Research, among many others. Committed to outreach, Kizuna Dance has lead workshops and residencies in ten states and internationally in Japan, Mexico, and the UK. Kizuna Dance was founded by Artistic Director Cameron McKinney, whose work has been recognized through a Choreographic Fellowship from the Alvin Ailey Foundation, and through commissions from numerous institutions across the country and abroad.
dance-mobile is an annual series of free outdoor performances & classes in parks throughout the city. By ‘making space for dance’ in outdoor public spaces, Gibney Dance Company hopes to make the power of movement accessible to all members of our community.
