David Dorfman Dance: Aroundtown

A physical metaphor, emphasizing community, hope, and love

Aroundtown is a kinetic poem that examines the varied, unique and sometimes divided notions of LOVE- its meaning, purpose, and platform.

With original music, text, and visuals, the work explores commitment, community, and intimacy in times of violence and strife. DDD's trademark empathy, sly humor, and bombastic physicality are harnessed to examine LOVE as both sociopolitical and intimate weather systems.

Since its founding in 1987, David Dorfman Dance (DDD) has performed extensively throughout North and South America, Great Britain, Europe and Central Asia. DDD has regularly performed in New York City at major venues, including The Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Joyce Theater, The Kitchen, Danspace Project/St. Mark's Church, La Mama Theater, The Duke on 42nd Street, The Met Breuer, and the 92ndSt. "Y"/Harkness Dance Festival. David Dorfman, the company's dancers, and DDD's artistic collaborators have been honored with eight New York Dance and Performance (Bessie) Awards.

DDD promotes the appreciation and critical understanding of dance by realizing the creation of new works by choreographer David Dorfman and his artistic collaborators. In advocating his mission "to get the whole world dancing," Dorfman's work has enjoyed broad and diverse audiences nationally and internationally. DDD creates dance that seeks to de-stigmatize the notion of accessibility and interaction in post-modern dance by embracing audiences with visceral, meaningful dance, music and text. By sustaining a vision to create innovative, inclusive, movement-based performance that is radically humanistic, DDD maintains a core commitment to examine and unearth issues and ideas that enliven, incite, and excite audiences in dialogue and debate about social change and a myriad of other topics.
