New Dance Theatre, in a co-production with Access Theater, makes its New York debut with ASYLUM, July 13 - 30 at Access Theatre in TriBeCa. With Asylum, New Dance Theatre explores the gestures of mental illness, living in a world of stigma, and how we can find the compassion we need to feel -- if not healthy -- at least human. ASYLUM is an original dance-theatre piece directed by Ilan Ben-Yehuda and Shannon Stowe.
"...an amazing showcase! (Heidi Russell, International Women Artist's Salon), ASYLUM breaks from the traditional model of choreographer and dancer and features actor generated choreography exploring where the pedestrian and the profound meet, where what is unspoken is revealed through gesture and dance. New Dance Theatre is: Jim Anderson, Jes Bedwinek, Ilan Ben-Yehuda, Amy Fulgham, Alexandra Gellner, Bethany Geraghty, Patrick T. Horn, Angie Tennant, and Artistic Director, Shannon Stowe.
ASYLUM marks the culmination of NDT's 2016-17 participation in the Access Residency Program and New Light Theatre Project's Darkroom Developed.
About New Dance Theatre
New Dance Theatre was founded by Shannon Stowe with fellow New School for Drama alum in 2014. They formed as a company using Pina Bauschs quote, you have to believe that dance is something other than technique. We forget where the movements come from. They are born from life. When you create a new work, the point of departure must be contemporary life -- not existing forms of dance as their driving force. It was important for them, as a company, to find the how the impulsive, gestural response of an actor can supply physical vocabulary for choreography and create a unique form of expression that is something other than classical dance and outside the boundaries of traditional theatre. This is the foundation of their work. They presented STRICKEN at the Emerging Artists Theatres New Works Series and was invited back to the BEST OF week, during which time they presented the first work-in-progress performance on ASYLUM.
