David Dorfman is one of the most recognized post-modern choreographers, and he’ll be spending the duration of the month on the Ohio University campus as a part of the Division of Dance’s 2017 Summer Dance Institute.

On Saturday, June 24, David Dorfman Dance Company will present a special performance of Aroundtown in the Shirley Wimmer Dance Theater in Putnam Hall. The performance is free to participants in the 2017 Summer Dance Institute and open to the public with a $10 per person suggested donation.

Aroundtown was just worked extensively at a creative development residency at Jacob’s Pillow Dance/The Lumberyard and will soon premiere at the Bates Dance Festival. A question and answer session and a reception with the artists will follow the performance.

WOUB’s Emily Votaw spoke to David about his long and winding career, as well as what it means to be a dancer in what could, perhaps, be considered the post-post modern age.
