Event Description:

presented with the  CUNY Dance Initiative

Gabrielle Lamb, winner of a 2014-15 Princess Grace Award for Choreography, has won praise for her commissions from Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, Milwaukee Ballet, BalletX, and many others. In a new creation for her seven-member company, Pigeonwing Dance, she explores the dynamics of groups under pressure.  Drawing inspiration from Rebecca Solnit's writings on the disaster communities that follow earthquakes and floods,  Lamb asks: How do we behave under extraordinary circumstances? Are we innately competitive or cooperative creatures, and in which of these directions are we evolving?  Finally, how can the arts help us to strengthen our ties of belonging?  

Pigeonwing is joined by the Joffrey Ensemble performing Lamb's Tessellations, which was praised by Broadway World as a "jewel" when it premiered earlier this year at New York Live Arts.  With music by the Amestoy Trio and Cat Power. 

Visit and for more information on Gabrielle Lamb and her work with Pigeonwing Dance.
