About This Event

Core Dance presents Niv Sheinfeld and Oren Laor’s The Third Dance in its US Premiere and American Playground

“American Playground,” performed by Core Dance and choreographed by Niv Sheinfeld and Oren Laor, investigates multiple themes including “body as resistance,” personal authenticity, and the dialogue between public and private spaces. The work made its international premiere in Tel Aviv, Israel, last fall.

"The Third Dance," performed and choreographed by Niv Sheinfeld and Oren Laor, touches on romanticism and its clichés: the music of Gustav Mahler, huge bouquet of flowers, and a record player. Underneath all of these re-verberates one seemingly simple request: “tell me that you love me.” At first ad-dressed to one another, at a certain point they direct the demand at the audience, expressing a persistent wish: to continue to be moved, overcome the mundanity of life, be relevant, and gain recognition – both one another’s and others’.

Please be advised: "The Third Dance" contains brief nudity

These performances will be presented at 7 Stages on January 31, February 1st and 2nd, 2018 at 7:30PM. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door. ​

Event to Support Core Dance

Core Dance creates art, facilitates art-making, and engenders art engagement for those seeking to connect with what makes us uniquely human: our intellect, our emotional body, our spiritual center. The body is our playground, movement our building blocks. Within our bodies resides the whole of life, every truth. Through dance and the process of creating it we activate that which makes us individually unique and connect it to that which makes us indivisibly One. Core Dance was founded in 1980 by Sue Schroeder. We call both Atlanta, GA and Houston, TX home. We cultivate dance awareness and education nationally and internationally through our three organizational initiatives: Core Performs, Core Presents and Core Connects. Core Performance Company, the professional contemporary dance company of Core, is internationally acclaimed for its emotionally lucid and instantly accessible work.
