We respectfully ask for your tax deductible financial assistance to help with the flow in our actions.  Chris Ferris & Dancers presents dance that is brought to you with the vibrancy of unique and quirky action weaving an event that puts you squarely into the present tense.  There is nothing like live performance.  Be with us through our leaps, falls, bounces, and slices.  We offer sweat, heavy breathing, and an eyeful of action that gets you dancing within yourself.  We offer live original music made specifically with each dance.

 

Chris Ferris & Dancers aims to contribute to the culture of dance by creating an acute awareness of movement and its many possibilities so that you can view your everyday life from another dimension.  Movement is a large communicator.  We have been speaking this language of limbs, torso, mind, heart, and soul in New York City for over 30 years.  Be a part of this tradition by making it possible for us to pay artists and meet the costs of theater rental, rehearsal space, technical staff, and publicity.

CHRIS FERRIS & DANCERS’  PROJECTS

 

Chris Ferris & Dancers is premiering Linear Folds in Oribt on June 5, 2022 at Green Space Studio in LIC.  This is a tightly composed brainy duet contrasting flow and linear precision. Large flowing gesture is pitted against sculptural action. The dance is us as humans existing as an integral part of nature. Upcoming Performances

 

Linear Folds in Orbit will be a part of a new full evening work for the spring of 2023.

 

In October 2021 Chris Ferris & Dancers presented Urban Pastoral, an outdoor dance with 10 hand held sculptural lights and live music at Summit Rock in Central Park NYC. Urban Pastoral is a dance made in the present tense, partnering with the great outdoors.  Ten unique sculptural lights are by Warren Kloner. Ten dancers incorporate them into an improvisation structured specifically for the site..  As the sun sets the audience’s perception is altered as the lights take on a greater presence. Music was by Human Time Machine a group of percussionists that improvise at lead of a conductor.
