Gemma Bond had her first taste of choreography at the young age of 13 and later returned to the craft when she joined American Ballet Theatre, in 2008. In her Joyce debut, produced by INTERMEZZO DANCE, she presents two evenings of dance featuring her new and reconstructed works: Then and Again, The Giving, and Impressions. The three works consider the connection between everyday events and the aesthetics of ballet. Bond’s choreography is a study in placing ballet in a less traditional setting—without scenery, without mime and gesture, but through pure dance that creates and inspires emotion, which connects with the audience.
