The Restart Stage at Damrosch Park
This evening of dance and music collaborations begins with FLARE, created by Juilliard students Ellexis Hatch, choreographer, and Horacio Fernández Vázquez, composer, as part of Juilliard’s annual Choreographers and Composers project. This is followed by Juilliard Jazz and Juilliard Dance students partnering on a jam session. Juilliard Dance, directed by Alicia Graf Mack, develops artists of the 21st century trained in ballet, modern, and contemporary dance forms. Notable alumni of the program include Robert Battle, Pina Bausch, Jessica Lang, Lar Lubovitch, Andrea Miller, Ohad Naharin, Bebe Neuwirth, and Paul Taylor. Juilliard Jazz is led by director and alumnus Wynton Marsalis. Recent alumni include Creative Associate Jon Batiste, Kris Bowers, Aaron Diehl, Alexa Tarantino, and Immanuel Wilkins.
The future of music, dance, and drama is at Juilliard today. In this time of revival in New York City join us to cheer on the next generation of performing artists as we celebrate the resilience of our extraordinary city!
