CHANEL DASILVA, BOBBI JENE SMITH & MICAELA TAYLOR
EMERGE is an innovative platform for emerging creators to create new work on world-class dancers and present their work in one of the most exciting venues in New York City. The 2019 EMERGE program features New York City-based choreographers Chanel DaSilva and Bobbi Jene Smith alongside the inaugural GDC/Springboard EMERGE Choreographic Award Winner, Los Angeles-based Micaela Taylor.
Each artist will teach classes, offer creative process sessions and dialogues about the future of the dance field, and create a new work on GDC to premiere on a shared evening. EMERGE highlights the continual expansion of GDC’s mission: from its beginning 27 years ago as a vehicle for the choreographic vision of its Founder Gina Gibney, to then welcoming re-stagings and new commissions from a wide range of guest choreographers, and now providing visibility, resources, and space to the next generation of creators in the contemporary dance community.
Don’t miss a post-show reception on opening night, and join us for Living Gallery, presenting a free, live performance in Gibney’s Gallery with Aynsley Vandenbroucke on May 3rd at 7:00 pm prior to the performance.
