David Dorfman Dance: Come, and Back Again

November 1 & 2, 2013 8PM Kay Theatre

David Dorfman Dance in performanceIn his more than 25 years as a choreographer, David Dorfman has tackled a variety of subjects in his dances, from the nature of athleticism to the big ideas that define our humanity. Despite the serious nature of these inquiries, his dances are alive with humor and the unbridled joy of movement.

Come, and Back Again is an exploration of vulnerability, mortality and the virtuosity required to live daily life. Driven by the charged poetry and unapologetic, raw ferocity of the underground '90s Atlanta band Smoke, five dancers and five musicians embark on a kinetic anthem of reckless personal abandon, exploring how time and memory influence and define our slippery, elastic existence. The members of the live band will inhabit the stage with the dancers, which includes Dorfman playing the roles of both dancer and saxophonist.
