Hysterika Jazz Dance & Gabriela Alvarado make their NYC debut! What’s next?
On Saturday, Feb. 20, Hysterika Jazz Dance–founded by Artistic Director, Barbara Angeline–premiered in New York City. “N’est-ce Pas Si Bon?” was performed by newest HJD company member and MGSA Dance alumna, Gabriela Alvarado.
Hysterika Jazz Dance will perform “eat Crow” in NYC on April 9 & 10. For information and tickets, go to: http://jazzchoreographyenterprises.org/jce-announces-the-the-april-2016-new-york-jazz-choreography-project/
“eat Crow” explores the relative idea of “freedom” in the 1920s, through the eyes and inspiration of Josephine Baker. This historical collaboration with the iconic Baker and 1920s jazz dance illuminates the kinesthetic and social experiences of black and white performers of that era. In Harlem dance clubs, all-black revues and all-black Broadway shows–such as the ground-breaking “Shuffle Along”–black dancers had loose, wildly sensual, unrestricted “Freedom of Body” but severely limited space to advance in the world. On Broadway stages and off, white dancers had literal and figurative “Freedom of World” but were relatively restrained in body movement, even in the “Roaring 20s”. These ideas were used as a structure to frame our exploration of Josephine Baker’s wild exhibitionism; her unpredictable mix of sensuality, comedy and loose-limbed dance; her unquenchable quest for love and the “home” that she found in the amusement, adoration and attention of black and white audiences.
