Lead Me, originally developed with five dancers in a Nexus Lab - Dance Lab NY week long (virtual) residency, and presented as a duet in October 2020 with guest artist Sayiga Eugene Peabody, has now been adapted through the barriers of online rehearsal to fit the full company of nine dancers. Through the embodiment and exploration of what it means to be a leader, Lead Me shows the inner turmoil and struggle that comes with power.
Ariel Rivka Dance will provide a short moderated talkback after the performance with Artistic Director, Ariel Grossman.
