NYC FALL SEASON

Presented at the KnJ Theater

New York City’s acclaimed Peridance Contemporary Dance Company (PCDC) returns to the KnJ Theater for its first live season since the start of the pandemic. The company will present three performances on December 11th and 12th, 2021. The program highlights Israeli artists, featuring two new works;  Oceans by Peridance’s Artistic Director Igal Perry with original music by Israeli composer Amit Weiner and studies in movement polyphony by Guggenheim Fellowship recipient Netta Yerushalmy. 


From its 2020 season, the Company will be presenting two works, which due to the pandemic, have never been performed in front of a live audience: Twilight by Igal Perry, set to music by Frédéric Chopin, and Just Above the Surface by Yin Yue, originally created during the Company’s residency at Western Michigan University in 2019.  The company previously presented these works in a virtual performance, Threshold, which was released in June 2021.


PCDC’s 2021 Fall Season is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature. In addition, Perry’s newest creation, Oceans, is supported by New Music USA. Funding for New Music USA is made possible through annual program support and/or endowment gifts from Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust, New York State Council on the Arts, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, Howard Gilman Foundation, Helen F. Whitaker Fund, and The Aaron Copland Fund for Music, Inc.
