Carolyn Dorfman Dance to perform at Dr. Philips High School
October 11, 2019
Carolyn Dorfman Dance, a premiere modern dance company based in New Jersey and New York City, will make a special appearance in Orlando at the Dr. Phillips High School Auditorium, 6500 Turkey Lake Road, on Saturday, Oct. 19 at 7:30 p.m. One of the dances of the four-part program is “Odisea.”
Commissioned by Jewish Heritage New York and premiered at New York’s popular South Street Seaport in 2004, “Odisea” chronicles the story of Jewish immigrants who left persecution in Brazil in 1654 and journeyed to New Amsterdam (New York City). Praised by the New York Times, “The men and women of Odisea are unmistakable refugees who become optimistic pioneers as the dance subtly builds.” The work draws on the rich cultural heritage of choreographer Carolyn Dorfman with original music blending elements of Jewish liturgy and musical legacy.
Other works in the program include “Keystone,” (Movement 1), “WAVES,” and “Snap Crackle Pop.”
The evening will also feature a performance by the dance students at Dr. Phillips High who are participating in the residency with Carolyn Dorfman Dance. Tickets for the Oct. 19 program are only $20 and may be reserved through https://teachtix.com/dphs/carolyn-dorfman-dance-concert.
