CoreDance presents ‘Thresholds of Being’

CoreDance Contemporary in ConcertCoreDance Contemporary presents Thresholds of Being, a diverse program of modern dance, on Friday and Saturday, April 18 and 19 at 8 p.m. at The Actors Fund Arts Center in Brooklyn, New York. 


The program opens with Of Loss: Grief’s Transitions in its NYC premiere. Developed through collaboration with Australian composer Andrea Breen, it is an exploration of the seven stages we as human beings go through when dealing with a grief situation. A multifaceted response to loss, particularly to the loss of someone or something to which a bond was formed, grief has emotional, physical, cognitive, behavioral, social, spiritual and philosophical dimensions. In essence, grief is reactive. 


Also on the program is A Woman’s Work, which is an exploration in the narrative of the role of the upper middle class housewife in the 1950s.


Collaborators for the evening include photographer Eric Bandiero and costume designer Dawn Klein. Dancers include Kate Bishop, Rose Buis, Maddison Clay, Julie DeGregorio and Jessica Nolan.


Tickets to the performances are $15 each and are available online at or at the door. The Actors Fund Arts Center is located at 160 Schermerhorn Street in Brooklyn, near the Hoyt Street/Schermerhorn Street A/C/G Subway Stop.


CoreDance Contemporary is an Australian modern dance company residing in New York City. CDC’s objective is to investigate choreographically, different and oft time’s contradictory movement vocabulary through the physicality of one’s kinetics, and to explore the realization of this physicality as it takes form in the space. The company is comprised of five female dance artists who bring different cultural and dance backgrounds to the fore. CoreDance has presented work at Alvin Ailey, Steps on Broadway, DANY Studios, PMT, Dixon Place, White Wave, Triskelion Arts and Green Space.
