VIDEO: Sneak Peek at Next Week’s ‘New Works’
The Kaplan New Works Series presents five world premieres from choreographers Jennifer Archibald, Taylor Carrasco, Dana Genshaft, Melissa Gelfin De-Poli, and Helen Pickett. Here's a video of the rehearsal of choreographer Dana Genshaft's Wunderkammer.
“My piece is about fantasy. Fantasy is the bridge our mind makes when it is reaching for ‘knowing.’ When we don’t know, we often create fantasies to make sense of the world,” Genshaft said. “In fantasies, we create objects of desire, but also of fear. I suppose this piece started out as my own awareness of my mind wanting to disassociate from reality. The instability of the future lent itself to the desire to escape. I hope it brings pleasure and delight to the viewer and elicits a personal sense of adventure.”
