Armenian guests artists to join Brooklyn Academy of Music program

PanARMENIAN.Net - DanceMotion USA’s David Dorfman Dance and Turkey’s Korhan Başaran Company will come together for a creative residency at Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) from Aug 14-16, featuring new collaborative work devised by the two dancers, Brooklyn Daily Eagle reports.

As one of three U.S. dance companies participating in the program’s fourth season, David Dorfman Dance recently completed a four-week-long educational exchange and performance tour of Turkey, Armenia and Tajikistan. Korhan Başaran Company — which will join David Dorfman Dance at BAM and at the Bates Dance Festival in Maine — was a company that David Dorfman Dance worked with in Turkey.

Additionally, two Armenian guest artists — Karen Khachatryan and Davit Grigoryan — have been invited to join the BAM residency as part of an effort by the DanceMotion USA program to promote themes of reconciliation.

DanceMotion USA is a cultural diplomacy program that supports U.S. foreign policy goals by engaging international audiences through educational opportunities, performance and cultural exchange. The program is a people-to-people international exchange initiative of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, produced by BAM.
