A diverse lineup of companies and choreographers flock to Dixon Place—New York City’s historically renowned experimental local haven for creativity—on Friday, November 17 at 7:30pm for Pentacle’s twelfth year of Fall Further! From a side splitting dive into the phenomenon of pronouns, to stirring aerial work intermingled with melancholic naturistic projections, to a creative mix of bungee and modern dance, an evening of intriguing dance performance awaits. Join us for a one-time performance bringing together works by Claire Porter / PORTABLES (NJ), Freespace Dance (NYC/NJ), milkleaf (Los Angeles), The Moving Architects (NJ), and Sonia Plumb Dance Company (CT). Please note there will be no late seating after 7:40pm. Contact Pentacle at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about the performance.
Fall Further, now in its twelfth year, is Pentacle’s signature fall performance showcasing Administrative Support Program (ASP) artists in the heart of the entertainment capital of the East Coast. In line with Pentacle’s mission to design unique and robust programs for performing artists at critical stages in their careers, ASP provides direct administrative services and performance opportunities for New York City local and national artists looking to build more sustainable organizational operations alongside a cohort of artists with similar goals.
ABOUT THE COMPANIES & WORKS:

Freespace Dance presenting My Back To You and Inside The Quiet
My Back To You is a tender duet reflecting the many aspects and willingness to stay committed through the ups and downs. Inside The Quiet is a piece that explores the missing, broken or hidden parts of ourselves.

“Inside the Quiet is a beautifully constructed piece where [dancers] took turns falling away from a vertical axis, plunging, diving and breaking through barriers with an impulse that suggested rolling ocean waves.”
milkleaf presenting Nostalgia’s Window
Dancing light and shadow tether a solitary figure to ancestors at once familiar and distant. Peering through the window of nostalgia, the dancer marks her memory of forgetting. Within the fire of her isolation, matrilineal tendrils unfold. Lucent. Vivid. Flashing.

The Moving Architects presenting O my soul
The duet O my soul combines dynamic dance, film, and interactive props to explore the visceral dichotomies we experience in life: tension and release, speed and stillness, exertion and recuperation, and being alone and together. The title references biblical laments uttered during times of trial.

“An aesthetic adventure. Plumb’s work… come across as one with clarity of line and space and can turn from a comedic moment to a regal lift on a dime.” —The Hartford Courant
