David Dorfman Dance to Share a Study of Love through Movement
Lake Placid, NY: The Lake Placid Center for the Arts is proud to present David Dorfman Dance (DDD)on Friday, June 7 at 7:30 PM. Tickets start at $15 and are available by calling the LPCA Box Office at 518.523.2512 or online at www.lakeplacidarts.org.
The dance company will perform Aroundtown, 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. David Dorfman Dance's trademark empathy, sly humor, and bombastic physicality are harnessed to examine love as both sociopolitical and intimate weather systems.
DDD will be in residency at the LPCA for two weeks and will bring their work to local schools during their stay, in addition to the public performance on Friday evening. Support for this engagement of David Dorfman Dance is provided in part by the Dance Residency Program of the New York State Council on the Arts.

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.
