Quotes & Highlights
- "Jerardi's talent is well established within dance circles; her perfectly capable video installation proves her merits in other genres as well." --Washington Post
<p>DC-area artists Daniel Burkholder and Jane Jerardi generate inventive dance works that engage audiences in unexpected ways by employing improvisation, experimentation and multimedia.</p> <p>Daniel Burkholder's company The PlayGround combines the formalism of choreography with the spontaneity of improvisation in "My ocean is never blue." Called a "stunning display of ensemble work" by The Washington Post, the work examines our multi-faceted relationships to water, from the personal to the environmental and political.</p> <p>Jane Jerardi's dances move fluidly between media — from dancers captured in videos that are projected on the sides of buildings to intimate personal private performances and site-specific works.

Re-imagined as a series of related dances, they will intersperse projected video with striking gesture and compelling performance, including a new piece to a score by Amy Farina of The Evens.</p>
