Please donate to support our upcoming project, Transitional State!
After two days of deals (Black Friday and Cyber Monday), Giving Tuesday is a day devoted to giving back. It’s a day when people of all backgrounds come together to support the causes that matter to them.
Today our world feels ever more divided and volatile. Amid the chaos, dance has the power to transcend factions and turmoil. We can’t help but empathize with moving bodies: when we observe other humans in motion. Dance embraces the human condition, connecting natural movements of the body with a full expression of the human spirit, evoking hope and communal strength, urging us to recognize our common humanity and appreciate our cultural differences.
If you believe in positive cultural change through dance, please consider giving to the Kelley Donovan & Dancers on Giving Tuesday. Together we can ensure that our work continues to inspire and unite for decades to come.
Our current project Transitional State, marks a departure from Donovan’s usual abstract dance work. It attempts to describe, through a nonlinear narrative, characters overwhelmed by life transitions leading to a state of emotional unraveling, expressed through the movement and laughter. Through mercurial weight shifts we will explore how these sudden shifts, optimistically force us to adapt.
Dancers: Allison Trotta, Anne Marie White, Bethany Logan, Coline Buencamino, Dana DeFabrizio, Leisa DeCarlo, Dot Armstrong, Emily Chamberlin, Gabbie Burgess,Gabriella Graziano-LoPresti, Jessica Lam, Lea Torelli, Liana Kleinman, ParkerGrant. Sarah Bolander, Sharayah Spruill, Zoe Warshaw.
Transitional State will premiere at JACK on January 5-6 at 505 1/2 Waverly Street, (at Fulton St.) Brooklyn and the work will be performed in Cambridge, Massachusetts at The Dance Complex, 536 Massachusetts Ave. in Central Square on March 16-17th.
