Nimbus Announces BAM Season: April 26-28
World Premieres by Samuel Pott & Dawn Marie Bazemore
Live Music by Grammy-nominated Tim Eriksen

BAM Fisher Fishman Space
321 Ashland Place, Brooklyn, NY 11217
Information: www.NIMBUSDANCEWORKS.ORG

Grammy-nominated musician Tim Eriksen (Cold Mountain, Academy Awards) and Nimbus Artistic Director Samuel Pott collaborate on Hollow Square, a work for 6 dancers. Called “one of the best singers in music” by T Bone Burnett, Mr. Eriksen brings a distinctive sound grounded in the roots tradition of sacred harp singing and early Appalachian folk - earthy, incessant, and guttural. Mr. Eriksen’s hypnotic sound underscores Mr. Pott’s virtuosic and high-energy choreography, which rides on top of as if propelled by the meditative vibrations of Mr. Eriksen’s vocalizations. Hollow Square references the choral arrangement of a shape note chorus: specifically designed to give space for deep spiritual connection between people, Hollow Square is energized through repetition, concentration of bodies in space, diversity, and the vibrations of human voice resonating.

Nimbus also premieres The After Party, a new piece by noted Philadelphia-based choreographer Dawn Marie Bazemore (Philadanco alumna). Vibrant, quick, and spirited, The After Party pays honor to jazz legends Nina Simone and Nancy Wilson. With intricate musicality and vivacity, Ms. Bazemore explores intertwined relationships, dynamics, and joy of movement in this ode to jazz. Ms. Bazemore’s soulful choreography has been hailed as “robust” (Dance Informa) and “theatrical” (The Dance Journal). She has been awarded the Helen Tamiris Award for Excellence in Dance and the 2018 ACHI Magazine Inc. Trailblazer of the Year award.

Two returning works will be performed as well: Dew Point 68, Darshan Singh Bhuller's memorable rumination on late '60s awakenings and turbulence: Vietnam war, race relations, interracial marriage and protest. Finally the company presents the New York premiere of Samuel Pott's The Glare From These Horizons, set to poems by his brother Roland Pott, compositions by Kim Jeblick, and recordings by jazz artists Russell Malone and Skalpel.

The April performances at BAM Fisher come at an exciting time for Nimbus, as it leads up to relocating to the newly-constructed 15,500 sq. ft. Nimbus Arts Center at the Lively in Jersey City in winter 2020. The Nimbus Arts Center represents one of the most significant investments in the arts in Jersey City history; there Nimbus will expand its reach and embark on new initiatives to bring artistic excellence to the community.

Says Artistic Director Samuel Pott: “Surrounded by increasing destabilization and transience - social, professional, geographic - we celebrate the expressive power of dance to remind us of what is most important: personal story and the underlying bonds manifest through music and the creative, unifying act of performance. Within this context, we are very pleased to present at BAM a guest commission by choreographer Dawn Marie Bazemore, collaboration with musician Tim Eriksen, and repeat performances of Darshan Singh Bhuller’s Dew Point 68.”

Grammy-nominated singer and musician Tim Eriksen casts a spell – transporting audiences to another place and time: an Americana through the looking glass, where the village is imaginary but the music is real. With haunting images by Susan Brearey projected through a Magic Lantern, and the backing of percussionist Peter Irvine, be immersed in a world at once imagined and deeply true: shape-note harmony by the first published Native American composer, fiery Scottish fiddle tunes, apocalyptic Afro-Celtic gospel, traditional and original songs of war, the sea, traveling, tragedy and love, that tie it all together.

Home away from home


Help Nimbus Honor and Permanently Commemorate Meredith Lippman

For three decades, Meredith Lippman (1952-2015) dedicated herself to the arts of Jersey City and Hudson County. She was admired for her artistic curiosity and willingness to learn. As a teacher, advocate, mentor, and unifier in the arts community, Meredith’s impact was widespread on local arts organizations and individual artists. She served as President of Pro Arts Jersey City, played a key role at the Hudson County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs as Program Development Specialist, and was instrumental in finding Nimbus Dance Works’ first full-time home studio.

Nimbus Dance Works is developing a new arts center in Jersey City that will serve performing artists, visual artists and youth (more details to be released publicly soon). A long time supporter of Nimbus, Meredith Lippman’s estate is generously donating the proceeds of the sale of Ms. Lippman’s paintings to Nimbus in support of the new arts center.

In recognition of Meredith’s lifelong contributions to the arts in Jersey City, Nimbus
hopes to commemorate Meredith by permanently naming a gallery space for her at the new arts center. In order to make this possible, we must raise $30,000 in Meredith's name. Please consider purchasing one of the remaining paintings (currently on view in our gallery) or make a donation to honor and commemorate Meredith Lippman in the community she served so selflessly.

To view available paintings, please click HERE.

Ms. Lippman's work will be exhibited in the Nimbus Gallery from September 7- 28

Gallery Hours:
Monday-Thursday: 4-8pm
Friday: 4-7:30p

Looking Forward: Remembering Meredith Lippman - Art Auction and Fundraiser
#25
Home away from home
Home away from home


For three decades, Meredith Lippman (1952-2015) dedicated herself to the arts of Jersey City and Hudson County. She was admired for her artistic curiosity and willingness to learn. As a teacher, advocate, mentor, and unifier in the arts community, Meredith’s impact was widespread on local arts organizations and individual artists. She served as President of Pro Arts Jersey City, played a key role at the Hudson County Office of Cultural & Heritage Affairs as Program Development Specialist, and was instrumental in finding Nimbus Dance Works’ first full-time home studio.

As part of her estate and wish to encourage advocacy for the arts, her family has donated 40 of her paintings to be auctioned. Proceeds from auctioned work will benefit Nimbus Dance Works.

Please join us to celebrate the legacy and indelible impact Meredith Lippman made as an artist and arts leader in Jersey City. The Exhibition’s opening event will feature wine selection by CoolVines with hors d'oeuvres and sweets.

Ms. Lippman's work will be exhibited in the Nimbus Gallery from September 7- 28.
