Nai-Ni Chen presents Superheroes
Disabled Students and Professionals share the Stage at
New Jersey City University (NJCU)
May 2, 2019 10 AM
Margaret Williams Theatre of NJCU
2039 Kennedy Blvd. Jersey City, NJ 07305-1597

Featuring Students of the A Harry Moore School

The Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company is proud to announce its 4th season in residence at the New Jersey City University. The showcase features students from our A Harry Moore School Residency, as well as, students from our ballet and modern classes at NJCU. The Nai-Ni Chen Dance company will also demonstrate professional work. This is a rare opportunity to see the Nai-Ni Chen Dance Company in a free concert for the public.

The Company has pioneered one of the most innovative dance programs for young people with multiple disabilities in the region. In 2018, the Company's program at the A Harry Moore School for children with disabilities won the New Jersey Access Network's Innovator Award. Funding for the 2019 program has been made possible by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and the Turrell Fund.

Nai-Ni Chen and her dancers have created a series of progressively challenging projects that lead the students in A Harry Moore School to explore their unique abilities. The Company works with resident professional therapists to improve the students' social, cognitive and physical abilities through music and dance. The results have "shattered every benchmark we could set for them" says adaptive physical education teacher Lori Berig.
This year, Nai-Ni Chen and her dancers have designed a series of lessons around the theme of Superheroes. The theme was inspired by the amazing students and their special abilities. The Company's world-renowned professional dancers have partnered with each student to create choreography especially for them.

Mr. Steven Goldberg, the Principal of the A. Harry Moore School said: "Whenever we ask our students how they would like to be treated they inevitably say just like everyone else. To watch our students be able to take the stage and dance just like everyone else is truly heartwarming and uplifting."

Vangeline Theater / New York Butoh Institute presents
??re??? (Erasure)
With butoh dancer Vangeline
Thursday-Saturday at 8pm
Sunday at 3pm
May 16-19, 2019
Theater for the New City's Johnson Theater

Vangeline Theater and the New York Butoh Institute present ??re??? (Erasure), running May 16-19, 2019 at Theater for the New City's Johnson Theater, with performances Thursday-Saturday at 8pm and Sunday at 3pm.

??re??? (Erasure) is the second installment of a performance triptych by butoh artist Vangeline. The 60-minute solo explores butoh techniques of erasure, as well as the phenomenon of female erasure taking place in our society. Vangeline, who both created and performs the piece, states, "Women are the forgotten of history. We have been silenced, erased from memory; even our names have been erased, while famous men were laid in the Pantheon for posterity. How many women writers, artists, scientists are there, whose names we will never know or remember? Through the magic of Butoh, I will "erase" myself, and give space for women to come back and dance through me."

Tickets for the performance are $15 General Admission and can be purchased at
