In their 5th annual NYC season, For Dance, Inc. presents the celebratory evening performance of ACFDance’s 5-year anniversary with “Quintennial,” featuring 5 premieres. As has become typical of the company, multiple collaborations with non-dance artists include: original costume designs by Susan Banchek and company dancer Erica Abbott, piano composition by David Homan (whose work premiered with Ballet NY at the Joyce in 2005), live sculpture creation by sculptor Isabelle Garbani and an original dance video collage of ACFDance’s 5-year history by Robert Abrams. The evening will contain the dramatic and evocative storylines and movements Fadjo’s audiences have come to expect, complimented by an intimate and exposing video collage of “behind the scenes” footage.
Running On Time (2002— NYC Premiere of Extended Version)
Set to pounding techno music, this octet races along at the frenetic commuter pace so many identify with—no wonder it has been an audience favorite for four years.
The Muse (Premiere, Quintet, Sculptor and living female form)
At once delicate then strong, lilting then powerful--the woman lives her life balancing between heaven and hell and manages to be the best earth has to offer.
Somewhere in the Grey (Premiere)
Co-choreographed by guest dancer Kelvin Cooper (African American) and Fadjo (Caucasian), this duet exposes the raw truth that relationships are neither black nor white, but somewhere in the grey.
