New York Times on La MaMa Moves! 2018

 


10 Dance Performances to See in NYC This Weekend

"This festival, now in its 13th season, shines its spotlight on choreographers exploring issues around race, gender, religion and exclusion. Among the artists are Ni’Ja Whitson, who continues to excavate the idea of blackness in “The Unarrival Experiments #4” (a work in progress), and Adham Hafez, who looks at the body and politics in “To Catch a Terrorist.”

PROVOCATION IS PART OF THE FESTIVAL 

"The New York choreographer Jonathan González brings a sorceress to life in “Obeah.” Lucie Gregoire, from Canada, offers “Les choses dernière” (“The Last Things”), a dance about a woman fighting for survival in a chaotic world inspired by a Paul Auster novel. And Adham Hafez, an Egyptian artist, explores questions about identity in “To Catch a Terrorist.” 



 These are just three of 12 provocative works that will be unveiled at the La MaMa Moves! dance festival, now in its 13th year and held at La MaMa’s East Village theaters." - Gia Kourlas
