New work by choreographers who cross cultural, geographic & disciplinary boundaries. Curated by Marcia Monroe. Featuring Jenna Hanlon/Ryan P. McMullen, Eleanor Altholz/Nadia Khayrallah, Christopher "Unpezverde" Núñez, and Wendy Osserman Jenna Hanlon and Ryan P. McMullen graduated from Slippery Rock University with a BA in Dance where they were recipients of the Excellence in Dance Service Award (JH), the Excellence in Performance Award and the Excellence in Choreography Award (RPM). Following a 3-year period in which Ryan received his MFA from Florida State University, the duo established the foundation of their new work "the in between" during a residency at Louisburg College in NC. "the in between" unpacks the complexities of two bodies in space as they navigate the uncertainty of proximity, the impact of transitions and what it means to circle back to the familiarity of a subtle embrace. A recent graduate of Barnard College, Eleanor Altholz has worked with Andrew Harper, Michelle Thompson Ulerich, Antonia Franceschi, and Debbie Mausner Dance Collective, and has presented her own work at Current, Showcase and Spoke the Hub's Winter Follies. A graduate of Columbia University, Nadia Khayrallah currently performs with Gotham Dance Theater, eSKay Arts Collective, and Artists by Any Other Name. She has presented work through Artists by Any Other Name, Dancers Unlimited, and Fertile Ground. Nadia and Eleanor began their drag-comedy collaboration through Sacred Circle Theater's Word Made Flesh Festival, and the bro-mance lives on. Christopher "Unpezverde" Núñez is a New York based artist and choreographer. Núñez is a 2019 Leslie Lohman Museum for Gay and Lesbian Art Fellow and a 2018 NYFA Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program Alumni. In NY, his work has been presented at Movement Research at The Judson Church, Danspace Project, The Leslie Lohman Museum for Gay and Lesbian Art, BAM Fisher, Miami Art Week, The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Dixon Place, The Wild Project, Chez Bushwick and Panoply Performance Laboratory. Wendy Osserman studied modern dance with Martha Graham, Hanya Holm, Daniel Nagrin and Betty Jones. Osserman performed with Valerie Bettis, Alice Condodina, Kei Takei, Frances Alenikoff, and Hellenic Chorodrama throughout Greece. Theater for the New City presented Wendy Osserman Dance Company's 40th Anniversary season in 2016 as well as many other evening length works; most recently "Undermine," 2018.
