New England Dance on Tour (NDEoT) highlights the rich diversity of dance in New England in collaboration with artists and venues from across the region through a showcase of three distinct New England-based artists and choreographers.
Boston-based tap dance company Subject:Matter is led by Ian Berg, alumnus of The School at Jacob’s Pillow. The high-flying hoofers examine how to blur the line between choreographer and improvisation, audience and performer. The Davis Sisters perform together in the new dance theater work Junk Drawer: or the inherited utilitarian archive of the future, created in collaboration with Eric Mullins, which aims to connect people to people, past to present, and memories to dreams. Storied Places, a Nicole Stanton Crossroads Production with the Jay Hoggard Quintet, is an original re-imagining of experiences of migration (forced and voluntary), with particular reference to black experiences across the diaspora. Through the intricate interplay of movement, music, and text, the project explores points of departure and the imprints they leave across personal and global histories. The tour is made possible by a grant from the New England Foundation for the Arts.
