David Dorfman Dance

Winner of eight New York Dance and Performance (Bessie) Awards, David Dorfman and his energetic ensemble explore self and society through hyper-athletic works that are “big-hearted, idea driven, smart and shaggy” (Arts Journal).

Through movement, music, and monologues, Aroundtown explores the meaning of love in times of violence and strife. The company’s trademark empathy, sly humor, and bombastic physicality are harnessed to examine love as both sociopolitical and intimate weather systems. 

Presented in collaboration with the program of dance and movement at the University of Rochester, the Arts Center is proud to present this cutting-edge ensemble who “keeps alive the gospel of humanity, theatricality and good ol’ soul” (City Beat Cincinnati).
