In 2010, skybetter and associates left a lasting impression when they made their Joyce SoHo debut. This month, from April 5th to 22nd, they return to that venue with a world premiere and several works from their repertoire. The Brooklyn-based company, founded in 2008 by artistic director Sydney Skybetter, will perform Near Abroad (2008), The Laws of Falling Bodies (2009), Temporary Matters (2011), Little Boy (2012), and the world premiere of For Want of Sleep, featuring a commissioned score by composer Sxip Shirey.
skybetter and associates has partnered with Nel Shelby Productions to produce an innovative, multi-camera live stream of the performance on April 15th. Plus, every performance will be followed by a talk back with various artists, scholars, consultants and managers, including Eduardo Vilaro, artistic director of Ballet Hispanico (4/5); David Parker, artistic director of Bang Group (4/7); Bill Bragin of Lincoln Center and composer Sxip Shirey (4/14); Jill Johnson, Director of Dance at Harvard University (4/15); Tim Cynova, deputy director of Fractured Atlas (4/20); and Jennifer Edwards of Edwards & Skybetter | Change Agency (4/22).
Skybetter explained, “I’ve learned through extensive work in the dance community as a marketer and technologist that post-show talk backs are square one in audience engagement. So we thought, why just have one during the run when we can have one following every show.”
skybetter and associates performs at Joyce SoHo April 5, 7, 11, 15 & 20 at 7:30pm, and April 14 & 22 at 2pm. Seating is very limited. Tickets are available online.
