92NY Harkness Dance Center Presents FLOCK & Artists Somewhere Between, New York Premiere
The 92nd Street Y Harkness Dance Center’s 2022/23 Mainstage Series continues with FLOCK’s Somewhere Between, the New York premiere of their first ensemble touring show.This hour-long work features the signature partnering, rich and complex movement, and heartfelt storytelling of co-choreographers Alice Klock and Florian Lochner, joined by a stunning group of guest artists – Liane Aung, Kevin Shannon, Robert Rubama, Emily Krenik.
Somewhere Between unpacks how memory and imagination play into our reality and our definitions of self. Drawing from myths or childhood stories FLOCK has woven a physical and vibrant story that explores eternal truths around identity, joy, and the sense of belonging.
Somewhere Between was created through a residency hosted by the Dance Alliance of the Pikes Peak region in Colorado Springs and is now on a tour of the US with an international tour planned for this fall. The piece features a mix of music from some of FLOCK’s favorite contemporary music artists and otherworldly lighting design by Julie E. Ballard.
FLOCK split their time between Germany and the US with their bases in the south of Germany and on Whidbey Island in Washington State.
