Summer Premiere
Einsamkeit (Solitude) 
with Intimate Voices [1995]
June 2023 | The KnJ Theater

Choreographed by Igal Perry and conceived by Joe Horowitz, Einsamkeit (Solitude) is a multidisciplinary collaboration featuring live performances by world-renowned bass-trombonist, David Taylor, cellist Benjamin Capps, and pianist Joe Horowitz. Exploring expressions of existential solitude, Einsamkeit merges solo cello preludes of Mieczyslaw Weinberg with radical new versions of works by Schubert and Mahler, with Shubert’s “Leiermann” to be danced by Igal Perry. The night will also feature Igal Perry's Intimate Voices, also accompanied by solo cello.

Continuing our mission to serve the growing need for arts education in public schools, PCDC is partnering with three NYC public schools to provide free, company-led performance/workshops for their students in addition to our regular DanceBreak residencies!



The Legacy

Aimed to honor and document Peridance's past, the Legacy Project will assemble archival materials into a collection of photos, videos, text, and oral histories.

Telling the story of Peridance through the experiences of

         all those who have given time, resources, ideas, and            

   care, the Legacy Project will culminate in a Museum                  

    throughout Peridance Center and an online archive.                  

Keep an eye out for the Our Legacy, Our Stories      

initiative to submit your memories

and materials  to the Project!
