JCAST Weekend @ Nimbus: October 5 - OFFLINE Thrive
#1
Home away from home
Home away from home


NimbusPRESENTS: OFFLINE, now entering its fourth year, is a series of curated performances presenting the work of emerging to mid-career choreographers from the New Jersey/New York area and beyond. Designed to address the limited amount of space available for the creation and performance of new dance in Jersey City, OFFLINE provides audiences and artists the opportunity to have intimate and meaningful exchanges.

Featuring:

Linda Ryan (Liryan Movement)

Gina Montalto (GM and Dancers)

Wyckoff Collective

Tina Wang

Tayfun Zaidi

October 5th, 2019 8 pm
Purchase Tickets HERE
Group Discounts Available. Please contact programs@nimbusdanceworks.org for more information.

Guest Curator Arthur Aviles (Artistic Director of BAAD! The Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance and formerly of Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company) notes on the upcoming October 5th program :

The acclaimed activist and writer Audre Lorde self identified as a black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet and dedicated her life to confronting and addressing injustices of racism, sexism, classism, and homophobia. BAAD! The Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance has taken inspiration from Lorde for NimbusPRESENTS: OFFLINE, and we hold the mission of presenting work that empowers women, people of color, and the LGBTQ community. We recognize that the stage is a powerful platform to shine a light on the Jersey City community, make visible the invisible, and recognize the multitudinous ways of existing in this world.

We recognize the change that results from programs that privilege underrepresented voices, bodies, ideas, cultures the vital power of visibility. Being visible, vocal and present expands the narratives of who we are as women, people of color, and queer people, and the change is seen from the passing of Marriage Equality, to the LGBTQ and disability-inclusive curriculum bill, to a young person feeling inspired to shed the shame of being queer or poor and create a work that expresses their self-value.

Artists persistently create in the realm of possibilities and offer their communities and the world ways to live, to think, to co-exist and thrive. Though we have made progress it remains urgent to continue to respond to a pressing need in the world, in the Bronx, in New Jersey, in Jersey City, especially when oppressive rhetoric by national leaders regains a platform.

NimbusPRESENTS: OFFLINE Thrive offers a welcoming space to create, explore, experiment, consume, and share creative content that empowers women, people of color, and the LGBTQ community. Empowerment comes in many different forms and so too does the work we make to communicate ideas.

Home away from home


NimbusPRESENTS: Stage Door Series Thrive -with Arthur Avilés, Felix Rodriguez and Dr. Edgar Rivera Colón

NimbusPRESENTS: Stage Door Series Thrive will bring together two important scholar/writers of the uptown and Harlem Ball scenes. Edgar Rivera Colón and Felix Rodriguez will converse, recite, reminisce and share rare video footage of an underground culture only recently reemerged in the broader public eye in the FX television series, Pose.

Our scholars will not only compare notes they are also invited to express themselves as creative beings. Each will recite their own prose inspired from the culture that make up these communities.

As to make sure this scholarly process is not just a stepped back voyeuristic affair, we invite the audience to show up, not just as audience members who will sit back but also as responders to the discussion with their own questions prose and yes dance.

Bringing your own beats to walk the runway! Yassss!!! Disco ball, runway and beats will be all the rage at the NimbusPRESENTS: Stage Door Series Thrive.

This event is co-presented by Hudson Pride Center and made possible in part by a generous grant from the New Jersey Council on the Humanities

Guest Curator Arthur Aviles (Artistic Director of BAAD! The Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance and formerly of Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company will select 2 resident choreographers and 6 choreographers for performance only to present their work at Nimbus' Theater in Downtown Jersey City on Saturday, October 5, 2019.

The acclaimed activist and writer Audre Lorde self identified as a “black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet” and dedicated her life to confronting and addressing injustices of racism, sexism, classism, and homophobia. BAAD! The Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance has taken inspiration from Lorde for NimbusPRESENTS: OFFLINE, and we hold the mission of presenting work that empowers women, people of color, and the LGBTQ community. We recognize that the stage is a powerful platform to shine a light on the Jersey City community, make visible the invisible, and recognize the multitudinous ways of existing in this world.

We recognize the change that results from programs that privilege underrepresented voices, bodies, ideas, cultures – the vital power of visibility. Being visible, vocal and present expands the narratives of who we are as women, people of color, and queer people, and the change is seen from the passing of Marriage Equality, to the LGBTQ and disability-inclusive curriculum bill, to a young person feeling inspired to shed the shame of being queer or poor and create a work that expresses their self-value.

Artists persistently create in the realm of possibilities and offer their communities and the world ways to live, to think, to co-exist and thrive. Though we have made progress it remains urgent to continue to respond to a pressing need in the world, in the Bronx, in New Jersey, in Jersey City, especially when oppressive rhetoric by national leaders regains a platform.

NimbusPRESENTS: OFFLINE offers a welcoming space to create, explore, experiment, consume, and share creative content that empowers women, people of color, and the LGBTQ community.

The acclaimed activist and writer Audre Lorde self identified as a “black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet” and dedicated her life to confronting and addressing injustices of racism, sexism, classism, and homophobia. BAAD! The Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance has taken inspiration from Lorde for NimbusPRESENTS: OFFLINE, and we hold the mission of presenting work that empowers women, people of color, and the LGBTQ community. We recognize that the stage is a powerful platform to shine a light on the Jersey City community, make visible the invisible, and recognize the multitudinous ways of existing in this world.

We recognize the change that results from programs that privilege underrepresented voices, bodies, ideas, cultures – the vital power of visibility. Being visible, vocal and present expands the narratives of who we are as women, people of color, and queer people, and the change is seen from the passing of Marriage Equality, to the LGBTQ and disability-inclusive curriculum bill, to a young person feeling inspired to shed the shame of being queer or poor and create a work that expresses their self-value.

Artists persistently create in the realm of possibilities and offer their communities and the world ways to live, to think, to co-exist and thrive. Though we have made progress it remains urgent to continue to respond to a pressing need in the world, in the Bronx, in New Jersey, in Jersey City, especially when oppressive rhetoric by national leaders regains a platform.

NimbusPRESENTS: OFFLINE offers a welcoming space to create, explore, experiment, consume, and share creative content that empowers women, people of color, and the LGBTQ community. Empowerment comes in many different forms and so too does the work we make to communicate ideas. Folkloric to avant garde to street dance and all forms are encouraged and welcome. Choreographers who identify as people of color, queer, and all or no genders are encouraged to apply.


Proposed works should be no longer than 10 minutes. Priority will be given to new works and works in progress.

All choreographers will receive a 45 minute technical rehearsal.

Selected resident choreographers must sell 15 tickets to the performances. Choreographers selected for the produced performances are required to sell 10 tickets each.

Resident choreographers receive 30 hours of studio time for rehearsals and are required to do one work-in-progress showing prior to the performance for feedback from the curator, Nimbus artistic staff, and invited audience.

(Note about space use for resident choreographers: studio times are primarily available on Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings with some additional weeknight availability.)

Applicants will be assessed on the following criteria:
Demonstrated history of work
Project proposal quality
Project feasibility

Choreographers of all backgrounds encouraged to apply.

Application Deadline: August 4th
Application Fee:$15/submission, due upon application
