FEED FORWARD BY DAVID NEAUMANN
PREMIERED AT DANCE THEATER WORKSHOP IN NYC

Known for his sophisticated use of humor within a multi-disciplinary approach to dance-making, David Neumann/advanced beginner group continues to explore the boundaries of dance by bending habitual gestures around new shapes. feedforward, David's first evening-length commission at Dance Theater Workshop, explores the analogous relationship between contemporary performance and athletic events with live music composed by Eve Beglarian. This contest of disciplines is danced through the mind and its tragic strategies.

Choreographed by David Neumann 


“Who knows why some movements are heartbreaking, others hilarious? Who knows how Mr. Neumann manages to pinpoint each? And how on earth did he realize that having four onstage trombonists augment a score by Eve Beglarian was the only possible way to go? Mysteries, all — miraculous ones.”
