ECLIPSE – one-night-only dance celebration!
Garet&Company is thrilled and honored to present their first ever evening length showcase ECLIPSE at the Warner Theatre next month.
Garet&Co is an award winning contemporary dance company led by choreographer, dancer and teacher: Garet Wierdsma. Garet&Co has performed across the northeast, most notably in New York City, Saratoga Springs, Philadelphia, Hartford, and several cities in New Jersey. ECLIPSE will showcase four of Garet’s most celebrated pieces: “Big God,” “fester,” “WONDERFUL,” and “and sometimes i wish.” ECLIPSE will also debut a brand-new piece, set on the company by Guest Choreographer Madelynn Brown.
Garet&Co strives to create work that comes from a place of truth; work that is both guttural and beautiful. Garet&Co’s pieces often deal with themes of struggling mental health and the search for peace within chaos. They believe that art changes the world, and are passionately and actively working to be generators of light.
Garet&Co is a quickly growing company, and ECLIPSE will be an extremely special one-night-only showcase of their most celebrated work!
Creating a dance company was actually an accident for Garet- while she always planned to pursue choreography professionally, Garet&Co was born after she was selected for several choreography festivals, and while attending with dancers, she kept being asked what my company name was. Finally, Garet decided to call them Garet&Co and start a professional company.
That was in the fall of 2021, back when she had 4 dancers working with her and had attended two in person festivals and a few virtual film festivals. Now, only a little over a year later, Garet has 20 dancers in the company, including 10 adult paid professional members, and 10 student members who work with the company as apprentices. They’ve traveled across the Northeast for performances, and have already had the honor of being selected for and performing in over 15 dance festivals.
ECLIPSE will play at the Warner Theatre in the Nancy Marine Studio, 84 Main Street, Torrington, CT on February 18 at 7 pm. Tickets are $45 and may be purchased here.
