Gibney Dance Company presents EMERGE this week, a new program that highlights emerging choreographers through performance, classes, and discussion focusing on the creative process. From May 2 to 4, there will be new work from former Batsheva dancer Bobbi Jene Smith, former Trey McIntyre Project dancer and Harvard Dance Center artist-in-residence Chanel DaSilva, and Micaela Taylor, winner of the inaugural GDC/Springboard EMERGE Choreographic Award. You can check out a preview of DaSilva’s Swept here. “In my mind it was this split screen of two couples who were essentially the same couple but were showing two different facets of their relationship,” she says about the piece. The Thursday and Saturday shows will be followed by Q&As moderated by Risa Steinberg, while the Friday show will be preceded by a free Living Gallery performance by Aynsley Vandenbroucke, curated by Eva Yaa Asantewaa.
