Women in Dance 2013
Women from all walks and pirouettes of life showcase their work in this annual celebration of female dancers and choreographers, produced by Legros Cultural Arts founder Chantal Legros and directed by Simone Sobers, the co-founder of Sobers & Godley. CircuitDebris-founder Mersiha Mesihovic stages pieces that draw on her youth, spent partially in war-torn Bosnia and partially in peaceful Sweden. Betsi Graves, the director of Boston's Urbanity Dance, specializes in fusing modern and contemporary techniques with the blowtorch of artistry, while Lane Gifford's choreography has set feet dancing from Manila to Paris.
Legros Cultural Arts
The writers, dancers, actors, and musicians behind Legros Cultural Arts believe that creativity can unify. To that end, their works focus on unraveling prejudices and misconceptions, theming performance series around the many diverse peoples found in New York. The annual Multicultural Arts and Crafts Festival, for instance, celebrates the city's Hispanic, African American, Asian, Italian, and Greek creators, whereas the Women in the Arts series focuses on gender equality in the creative world and beyond. And there's also the theater ensemble's performance season, which is made up of diverse original works by local emerging playwrights, established talents, and haunted typewriters.
