Company: Dianne McIntyre and Amina Claudine Myers
Location: Brooklyn, NY
Long time collaborators Dianne McIntyre (choreographer/dancer) and Amina Claudine Myers (composer/pianist/vocalist) will be joined by two Brooklyn-based dancers, Careitha Davis and Matia Johnson. Together they will journey between ancestral sounds and swirling moves, from roots melodies to dynamic dimensions, as they unleash the mystery of "when."
Dianne McIntyre is regarded as an artistic pioneer, with an impressive career spanning four decades with choreography for dance, theatre, television and film. A 2016 Doris Duke Artist Award recipient, her individualistic movement style reflects her affinity for cultural histories, personal narratives and the boldness, nuances, discipline and freedom in music and poetic text. Since 1972, she has choreographed scores of concert dances, four Broadway shows, 30 regional theatre productions, a London West End musical, two feature films, three television productions, stage movement for recording artists and created five original full-length dance dramas. World renowned dance companies, such as Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Philadanco, Cleo Parker Robinson Dance, GroundWorks Dance Theater, Dancing Wheels, as well as forty plus university ensembles and major dance festivals have commissioned her choreography and teaching residencies.
