SURFACING - Von Howard Project

April 5th, 2013, 7pm, Modern Theatre

Iliev Dance Art Foundation is pleased to introduce for the first time in Bulgaria VON HOWARD PROJECT - a contemporary dance company based in New York City. The company will make its debut appearance during the week of the “Dance It!” intensive program, with the premiere of “Surfacing” – a new dance piece by choreographer Christian von Howard.

“Surfacing” is an ensemble work that explores the physical and emotional boundaries felt between mankind. Von Howard, along with his dynamic group of performing artists, delves into the superficial layers of outward appearances. “Surfacing” is guided by a pulsating soundtrack of 21st century electronic music with lighting design by Michael Jarett. Also on the program are repertory works by US choreographers Elizabeth Gillaspy and Ellenore Scott.
