Nimbus @ BAM 2019: Hollow Square
Named among Best Dance Performances of 2016 by The Huffington Post and called gorgeous [and] exquisite by Broadway World, Nimbus brings its unique brand of exquisitely rendered, highly physical, and emotionally accessible dance to BAM.
The program includes a much anticipated world premiere collaboration between Nimbus Artistic Director Samuel Pott and Grammy-nominated Timothy Eriksen (Cold Mountain, Academy Awards). Called one of the best singers in music by T-Bone Burnette, Eriksen brings a distinctive sound grounded in the roots tradition of sacred harp singing and early Appalachian folk - earthy, incessant, and guttural. Eriksens hypnotic sound underscores Potts virtuosic and high-energy choreography, which rides on top of as if propelled by the meditative vibrations of Eriksens vocalizations.
Nimbus also premieres The After Party, a new piece by Dawn Marie Bazemore (Philadelphia-based performer, choreographer, and dance educator, formerly with Philadanco). Vibrant, quick, and spirited, The After Party pays honor to jazz legends Nina Simone and Nancy Wilson. With intricate musicality and vivacity, Bazemore explores intertwined relationships, dynamics, and joy of movement in this ode to jazz.
Bazemores soulful choreography has been hailed as robust (Dance Informa) and theatrical (The Dance Journal). She has been awarded the Helen Tamiris Award for Excellence in Dance and the 2018 ACHI Magazine Inc. Trailblazer of the Year award.
