The Nimbus Dance Works concert features Esther, an edgy retelling of the Old Testament tale, and the company’s signature work, Memo, including student guest dancers from Newark Arts High School.
As part of the Jersey Moves Dance Festival, Nimbus will bring two signature works: Esther, an edgy multidisciplinary retelling of the Old Testament tale of gender, power and seduction; and Memo, an exploration of personal and collective memory, set to music by Antonin Dvorak. For this performance of Memo, a work woven in real time and written recollections provided by the audience, Nimbus will be joined by young dancers from Newark Arts High School.
The Jersey City-based Nimbus Dance Works has been called "gorgeous (and) exquisite" by Broadway World, and was included among the “Best Dance Performances of 2016" by The Huffington Post.
Nimbus Dance Works focuses on the intersection between professional dance and innovative ways of involving communities and audiences. The company presents works choreographed by artistic director Samuel Pott as well as commissions by leading international dancemakers.
