Barnard Project: Boyzie Cekwana, Lance Gries, Annie-B Parson, Donna Uchizono

The Barnard Project, now in its ninth season, continues to work with New York Live Arts to connect students to the world of professional dance by commissioning premieres from cutting-edge choreographers. This November, marking the first international collaboration between Barnard and the Suitcase Fund, New York Live Arts’ international cultural exchange program, students create an unforgettable experience with these celebrated artists: the “wünderkind of South African dance,” Boyzie Cekwana; Lance Gries, whose work possesses a compelling sense of “intimacy, immediacy, and vulnerability”; Annie-B Parson, known for her “freewheeling brilliance”; and Donna Uchizono, who brings to dance an “arresting beauty and an appetite for the imperfections of human life.”
