Dances For A Variable Population/Naomi Goldberg-Haas creates work with dancers ranging in age from 22-92. For our performances at Joyce SoHo, Oct 13-15, 2011, we are rethinking some of our dances created for outdoor spaces. We are also re-staging choreography created with dancers in residencies outside of NYC. This “Mambo” from our popular show “Street. Straight. Mambo. Disco.” was created during a residency at The Yard in Chilmark, MA and then performed in the outdoor Downtown Dance Festival at Chase Plaza. The work was created in collaboration with Sandy Broyard, who had a nightclub act in Paris in the 1960’s and Kathy Joyce Costanza, a founder of Vineyard Dance, the oldest established dance company in Martha’s Vineyard. Here’s a clip of how we are working.
