Battery Dance is now accepting applications for the 39th Annual Battery Dance Festival, with free performances on August 15-21, 2020. To apply, visit https://batterydance.org/apply/.

Established by Battery Dance in 1982 as the Downtown Dance Festival, today the Battery Dance Festival (BDF) is New York City's longest-running free public dance festival. Audiences are traditionally drawn from the large downtown working population and residents, families, tourists, senior citizens and dance fans from the greater NYC metropolitan area. Each year, the Festival attracts a combined audience of over 12,000 people.

The Battery Dance Festival provides a unique opportunity for both established and emerging dance companies to present original works of high artistic merit in a free public forum. BDF revels in the panoply of dance that our city offers, with strong emphasis on the inclusion of diverse dance styles and an international roster of performers. American choreographers such as Michelle Dorrance, Robert Battle and Elisa Monte have all presented their works alongside pre-eminent companies from Asia, Europe, South America, Africa and the Caribbean.

Plexus (a Work in Knots)
Friday, February 7, 2020 at 7:30pm
Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College,
524 W. 59th Street, NYC

The CUNY Dance Initiative and John Jay College, in collaboration with
Pigeonwing Dance, present the World Premiere of Gabrielle Lamb's
Plexus (a Work in Knots) on Friday, February 7, 2020 at 7:30pm at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College, 524 W. 59th Street, NYC.

In Plexus (a Work in Knots), Princess Grace Award winning choreographer Gabrielle Lamb creates a complex ecosystem of interdependent bodies, a mysterious network of fluctuating loyalties built upon an unsteady balance of power. This world premiere is performed by the seven members of Pigeonwing Dance - Lamb's own NYC-based company - and set to a commissioned electroacoustic score from composer James Budinich that mixes traditional instruments with sounds from found objects.

Tickets are $25 ($15 students/seniors) and can be purchased starting January 2, 2020 at https://www.pigeonwingdance.com/pwd/plexus.

Women in Motion Commission 2019/2020:
asubtout (Katy Pyle +Eleanor Hullihan)
Rebecca Stenn
Same As Sister (S.A.S.)/Briana Brown-Tipley + Hilary Brown-Istrefi

Brilliant, challenging and charming, Women in Motion 2019-2020 Commissioned Artists asubtout (Katy Pyle + Eleanor Hullihan), Rebecca Stenn, and Same As Sister (S.A.S.)/Briana Brown-Tipley + Hilary Brown-Istrefi bring their crafted, diverse ingenuity to the Gibney stage.

asubtout (Katy Pyle +Eleanor Hullihan)
The Centaur Show is a nouveau New Age fantasy death metal poperetta about two centaurs on an interstellar voyage to save their (non) binary star system from imminent supernova. Originally created by artists Katy Pyle and Eleanor Hullihan in 2007, 13 years later the pair return to their former personae as they look back on all the ways their world has already imploded, and stop to put on latex gloves to pick up the crystal shards of what remains. Featuring original live music, costumes, video and choreography by asubtout

Rebecca Stenn
The Oak and The Willow is a new duet choreographed by Rebecca Stenn and performed by Stenn and dancer Quinn Dixon. The original, commissioned live music score is composed and performed by Jay Weissman on electric bass. The Oak and The Willow is a painterly exploration of the movement of color and brushstroke, and creates a continually unfolding and evolving visual canvas on stage. Costumes are created collaboratively by Stenn and Dixon.

Against the familiar yet anonymous backdrop of an IKEA store, the young Sámi protagonist of Same As Sister's "Kallax" will go on a journey of ascent into American celebrity. Performer, Kristina Hay, joined by the supporting cast of Leigh Atwell, Hilary Brown-Istrefi, Briana Brown-Tipley + Jamie Robinson, will encounter the aspirations, expectations, fears, and consumptions of our contemporary society.
