Nadine Bommer’s ‘Invisiball’ coming to NYC

Nadine Bommer Theater Dance CompanyGowanus Art + Production welcomes Nadine Bommer Theater Dance and the inventive show Invisiball to its Brooklyn performance space for three nights only on Wednesday, June 24 through Friday, June 26.

 

Grab a hot dog and beer, and settle in to cheer for your team of choice during Invisiball, choreographer Nadine Bommer’s comedic theatrical performance about the world’s most popular sport. Experience 10 delicate female dancers transforming into virile, ultra-macho soccer players as a soundtrack of roaring crowds and rhythmic soccer hymns are paired with Bommer’s unique theater-dance language, turning the open space of 501 Union into a surprising, hilarious, multi-cultural soccer field… right from kick-off.

 

Having just completed a successful worldwide tour of Invisiball including performances in Berlin, Prague, Copenhagen, Pittsburgh and Macau, these shows in New York will mark the first performances with Bommer’s new U.S.-based company members. The U.S. cast has studied performing arts, theater and dance at prestigious schools and academies including LaGuardia High School for Performing Arts, The Ailey School, The Juilliard School and The Joffrey Ballet School, among others.

 

Nadine Bommer Theater Dance was established by Bommer in Israel in 2009 and has just opened its NYC studio with a local cast earlier this year. The show uses Animato; a unique theatrical dance method developed by Bommer. The technique and its movement is inspired by the sea and kinetic energy, evoking watery and shapeless movements, that penetrate every motion of the performers. This weightless technique allows the performers to seamlessly embody and portray their characters. The distinctive nature of the Animato dance produces an extraordinary energy on stage, authenticity and exciting totality to characters and situations – something that distinguishes Bommer’s Animato dancers and characterizes her choreography.
