Join Dance Anonymous in their 2nd evolution of CLUSTER as they lay down the blueprint for an exciting new concept in dance design.

CLUSTER in Black & White

Dance Anonymous brings you an evening of collaboration, improvisation and celebration with some of New York’s and Canada’s most exciting artists.  Part concert, part ritual, part playground, we invite you to experience dance through a different lens as we examine extreme polarities and stark contrasts.  Delve into clusters of bodies, floating human cocoons, flying dancers in motorcycle helmets and hammocks on bungee over grapes, wine, hookah and South African Amarula served by celebrity bartenders.

What is CLUSTER:

CLUSTER is a new-style international touring event that pushes the envelope in experiential performance by exploring environment, instinct, ancestry and play through art, technology and exchange.  The artists and audience submerge in a sensorial journey that nurtures a dynamic intersection of creativity with a mandate for powerful cross-cultural communication and awareness.

Harry Mavromichalis: Founder / Director

Ayelen Liberona: Artistic Director / Choreographer

Past Event: Cluster in 360°




 

 

Cluster in 360°, is a sexy new style event of dance, theatre and music, in collaboration with some of New York’s most exciting young artists.

On Sunday May 8th 2005, Dance Anonymous is taking over New York’s latest hot spot, BUTTER with its beautiful wooden arched architecture. We invite you to dive into an explicit experience of beauty and darkness as we explore how confined spaces can serve as a catalyst for revelation.  The artists will be performing in the kitchen, in the bathrooms, on the bar, under the tables and through original sets as we create a multidimensional montage of daring and emotional landscapes in the themes of a Port Town’s cultural mosaic.  Through multi-disciplinary collaboration we will expose the seeds of Cluster, a sneak preview of Dance Anonymous’ new work, to be premiered in September 2006.

Exclusive Gala at 5:00pm - $100 / Ticket

Our Gala guests will enjoy wine with fine dinning Hors D’oeuvres made exclusively by BUTTER’s own Alexandra Guarnaschelli and handmade chocolates by Confections by Daniel, live original music by Band X, exclusive performances by Dance Anonymous & guests, a silent auction and more dancing of your own to the global grooves of DJs Acidophilus & Derek Beres (GlobeSonic)

Open Door at 7:00pm - $20 / Ticket

At 7:00pm the doors will open again for friends to join the party.  Our open door tickets also include special performances in Cluster concept with live original music, bringing dance to the audience in 360°. There will be drink specials at the bar, a silent auction with wonderful gifts from our sponsors and the party will just be getting started.
