People in Motion

Elm City Dance Collective invites you to a viewing of our community performance project, People in Motion, on June 5th, 2pm, Trinity Lutheran Church.

New Haven, CT -  Elm City Dance Collective (ECDC) presents People in Motion, an Afternoon Showing of Dance, performed by ECDC and Friends. The showing will consist of three performances: “People in Motion”, performed by members of the New Haven and surrounding areas community; “If You Knew You Then” (in process), performed by ECDC; and “borderland” performed by Chloe Carlson. People in Motion will take place on Sunday, June 5th at 2pm, Trinity Lutheran Church | 292 Orange Street, New Haven. The showing is FREE and open to the public.

 People in Motion (the community performance project) is generously supported by the Arts Council of Greater New Haven through a community engagement grant. ECDC demonstrates the importance of having contemporary dance be more accessible in New Haven by offering experiences like People in Motion. We believe appreciating the art can come from welcoming others to participate in the act of making. Come out and support ECDC and Friends! We hope to see you there.

Gaga/Dada

Performance, Yale Dance Theater and ECDC: Gaga/Dada

Free

Yale Dance Theater (YDT) and the Gallery have invited artists Saar Harari and Lee Sher to create a new choreographic work for YDT dancers and Elm City Dance Collective that incorporates Gaga, a movement language developed by choreographer Ohad Naharin. Gaga, which has become highly influential in international contemporary dance, is the focus of YDT’s spring semester project. On Saturday, April 2, 1pm: YDT students have an open rehearsal within the exhibition Everything Is Dada. Then, on Sunday, April 3 at 2pm, they perform the new piece in the space, juxtaposing the 21st-century Gaga aesthetic with Dada works of art. Generously sponsored by the Lydia Winston Malbin Fund; cosponsored by Yale Dance Theater, Dance Studies Curriculum, and the Theater Studies Program.

Parking is free street side on Sundays, there is also a garage on York street - Chapel/York Garage, (members of the Yale Gallery can get their parking ticket validated and pay the max fee of $5.00), becoming a member is free and worth it!
