FJK Dance : FJK Dance
This event is over
FJK Dance company returns to the stage for their seventh Annual Season premiere performances at New York Live Arts, presenting two world premieres and FJK Dance repertoire. Fadi Khoury, New York based founder, Artistic Director, and the visionary engine behind the FJK Dance Company, has come through the pandemic with all his energies dedicated to a full Reset—hence the title of our newest production. Celebrating seven years of dance, RESET is a full evening program dedicated to the memory of Genevieve Young (1930-2020), a beloved founding Board member and guiding light. Her legacy, her love of dance, and commitment to the mission of FJK Dance in creating positive change, continues to inspire our professional artistry and engagement with the world-at-large.
Reset will be performed by FJK Dance Company’s ten dancers that represent eight different nationalities and our global vision. The program will include the following:
Mirage Human stories from the Middle East. (World Premiere)
Music: Schubert, piano trio in E-flat
Forbidden When love is locked, and the key is inside. (World Premiere)
Music: Abdel Wahab & Hossam Shaker
Bolero Challenge of duality
Music: Maurice Ravel
FJK DANCE Fusion of Culture and Dance performances are based on Fadi Khoury’s lifelong immersion in dance and reflect both his multicultural background growing up in Iraq and Lebanon, and his ongoing efforts to elevate Middle Eastern culture. Original choreography and visual arts promote cross-cultural dialogue, understanding, and healing.
