ZviDance presents Migrations, a dance performance collaboration between Zvi Gotheiner, composer Scott Killian, lighting designer Mark London, and seven dancers. Migrations is in line with Gotheiner’s previous works that reflect on the collision of humanity with nature. The company focused its creative attention on bird migration imagery and tendencies as a poetic mirroring for the current acceleration of human migration as a result of wars and the diminishing of life-sustaining resources. These concepts serve as a point of departure for the creation of Migrations. The choreography utilizes bird flocking imagery in the design of large group work, and flight imagery for the creation of trios and duets. Killian’s cinematic electronic score supports a sense of heroic struggle when traveling through the elements, while London’s lighting design creates landscapes that give the work a transitory sense of place.

Migrations was made possible by a three-week residency in Hunter NY, hosted through the Catskill Mountain Foundation. The development of this project was greatly supported by the Gilman Foundation and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Kathy C. Hochul and the New York State Legislature. This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Additional support was provided by DiMenna Foundation, Barnard Stern Foundation, and the Harkness Foundation for Dance.

This presentation of ZviDance is supported in part by the Israel Center of Jewish for Good.
