The Company

 

Fadi J. Khoury Dance

FJK Dance is a contemporary dance company founded in 2014 by Fadi J. Khoury and Sevin Ceviker. Dedicated to presenting a unique fusion of dance genres, it fills a void in the current dance scene, fusing the vocabularies of various genres – modern, jazz, classical ballet and traditional folkloric – into a language that expresses our fundamental, shared capacity to create.  Through its performances, FJK supports cross-cultural dialogue, infusing its works with positive images from many dance traditions.

We are a dance company that aims to demonstrate that choreography need not - should not - be confined by stylistic limits.  The company is an educational as well as a performing entity.  It addresses various cultural groups in the hope of achieving rapprochement through art.  It also addresses creators and consumers of dance, who are encouraged to re-imagine the capacity of dance to assimilate multiple styles.

At FJK Dance, we believe in the unique fusion of culture and dance. The endless possibilities of experimenting with the fundamentals of various forms of dance, from classical ballet to ballroom, from Middle Eastern to jazz––we combine the essentials of each to create our own language. One that uses abstract body lines, forms and energy to communicate with our audience.

Throughout the season insights are offered into the creative process by ‘works in progress' programs at various sites. The season culminates in a series of gala performances at New York Live Arts. FJK Dance has performed in venues such as Manhattan Movement & Arts Center, the 92nd Street Y, and the Kaye Playhouse at Hunter College.  The company also perform at festivals such as Jacob’s Pillow, Battery Dance Fstival, and the Fusion Arts Festival at Southhampton’s Cultural Center, Elebash Hall at the CUNY graduate center.
