BEAR’S EARS & DETOUR
“One does not just watch a dance by Zvi Gotheiner. One enters a world with its own internal logic, a sensual, organic world of movement, language, and images where one is pulled along by currents unseen and inevitable.” (Dance Magazine)
ZviDance’s 2018 Home season at New York Live Arts will include two world premieres; BEAR’S EARS and DETOUR. BEAR’S EARS sets out to raise awareness on the conflict surrounding Bear’s Ears National Monument in Southern Utah. While designated as a National Monument by President Obama, Bear’s Ears is now a symbol of the American Indian’s struggle due to the current Administration’s attempts to reverse Obama’s designation. DETOUR reflects on the longer, less direct way to get where you’re going.
Zvi Gotheiner is praised for a signature innovative style and fascinating melding of artistic mediums, his work is recognized as radical, contemporary dance theater, ground-breaking, thoughtful yet passionate, with lush movement. ZviDance’s renowned creative team includes composers Scott Killian, Media designers Josh Higgason, lighting designer Mark London and ZviDance’s eight athletic and expressive dancers.
