Digital Dance Festival: i shot denzel (2014)
Former New York Live Arts Fresh Tracks artist (2011), Acosta’s i shot denzel is the sixth incarnation of a three-year series of “denzels.” This multidisciplinary work explores black masculinity within the context of contemporary or “classical” movement.
Live Arts’ Digital Dance Festival (DDF) began in 2014 as a continued way to challenge how audiences view and interpret live performance. Pulling from their archive of past seasons, the DDF presents screenings of performances that provoke and intrigue the ever-growing dance public. Past participants have included Steven Reker/People Get Ready, Donna Uchizono Company, Jen Rosenblit and Live Arts’ resident dance company, the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company. Performances are viewed online and tickets are pay what you wish.
