Name: Live Performance by NVA & Guests at TACAW
Date: February 5, 2022
Time: 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM MST
TACAW and Dance Initiative present New York-based dance company NVA & Guests, who will be in residency in Carbondale with Dance Initiative from January 29 - February 7, 2022. Company founder, Nicole von Arx, was born in England and grew up in both Hong Kong and Switzerland. Her performance career led her to becoming a soloist at the Royal Opera House in London and Chicago Lyric Opera while dancing for Jasmin Vardimon. She’s worked for Carte Blanche (NO), Company XIV, Loni Landon, Romeo Castellucci’s Democracy in America, and Bryan Arias. She partnered with The Consulate General of Switzerland in New York, The Ace Hotel, The Yard, and Showfields, to organize online and outdoors pop-up dance classes. Nicole most recently choreographed an evening length concert at Stanford Live for singer-songwriter and activist iskwe. For her residency with Dance Initiative, Nicole will be joined by Michael Greenberg, David Flores, and Caitlin Taylor. Nicole will create highly physical dances and transform serious situations into light and playful scenes. She hopes to find new ways to safely invite spectators to feel a part of the show they’re witnessing.
