Choreographer:

Daniel Morimoto

Digital Movement Dance finds its roots in the lore of far off worlds and mind-bending adventures. It ensnares audiences and tours different realms. A peek here, a glimpse there - all views within the domain of video games. The company enthralls viewers by using the world-building and story-telling foundation of video games, and transposes them through a new medium - a physical, tangible medium. We will shatter the glass wall that separates “player” and “game”, and instead rope “players” into the heart of matter. Into the world of the unknown. Into the center of the chaos.

Martha Graham 

The Martha Graham Dance Company has been a world leader in the development of contemporary dance since its founding in 1926. Today, the Company is embracing a new programming vision that showcases masterpieces by Graham alongside newly commissioned works by contemporary artists. During its 90-year history, the Company has received acclaim from audiences and critics in more than 50 countries.

 

"These men and women easily embody the choreographer’s sense of dancers as angelic athletes,” says Robert Greskovic of The Wall Street Journal, while Marina Kennedy of Broadway World notes, “This is contemporary dance at its very best.” Siobhan Burke of The New York Times asks, “Can this please never go away?”
