GDC Curated: Lajamartin & Maleek Washington

GDC Curated Lajamartin and Maleek Washington

GDC Curated is an outlet for the Gibney Dance Company to present the work of diverse choreographers who share the values of its unique model, viewing dance artists as innovators, generators, and activists. Now in its third annual season, GDC has curated this series prioritizing creators who work with an aesthetic of physical rigor, uncompromising tenacity, and a drive to move the dance field forward. GDC aims to ‘make space’ for entrepreneurial artists who are using their craft to amplify the relevancy of the dance community and position dancers as influential citizens in the world.
