UnTold is supported by the CUNY Dance Initiative (CDI), a residency program that opens the doors of City University of New York (CUNY) campuses to professional NYC choreographers and dance companies. FJK Dance has been awarded a 2018-19 residency at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in Manhattan for two weeks (9/2/2018 – 9/15/2018). This residency offers a rare opportunity for FJK Dance to define all the technical and creative details for future touring of the work, especially in the US. The theater space is not only available for worklight rehearsals, but also for technical production including lighting, projection, and set design. The technical support from the theater includes production staff to help study, test and confirm the practicalities of UnTold considering its visual arts and installation base in addition to the theatrical dance performance. The residency will culminate in a public performance.
CDI supports local artists, enhances the cultural life and education of college students, and builds new dance audiences at CUNY performing arts centers, and this mission meshes well with that of FJK Dance. We are proud to be awarded the opportunity to workshop and perform the first production of UnTold at a public college in our home city.

One that uses abstract body lines, forms and energy to communicate with our audience. Read More →
