TalCual Dance Projects
TalCual is a project based company originated by the collaborations of Katie Garcia and Joan Rodriguez, two NYC based Latin artists. They met in 2018, while working for Parsons Dance. Katie is a BFA graduate of The Juilliard School and Joan is a MA graduate from La Escuela Nacional de Arte. During their time at Parsons, they simultaneously choreographed their own work and taught collaborative master classes at Yale, NYU, The Juilliard School, Akron University, and Laguna Dance Festival. In 2020, they presented their self produced dance film with original music, at the Blacktinx Dance Festival. Joan was a recipient of the GenerationNow Fellowship Grant for his new creation for Parsons Dance. Katie and Joan have worked with incredible artists such as Trey McIntyre, Mathew Neenan, Ronald K Brown, and Loni Landon. They have organized interdisciplinary installations in art galleries in NYC, collaborating with visual artists. Aside from performing, their passion is teaching outreach classes to children with special needs. Katie orchestrated a project in Gabarone, Botswana teaching movement therapy classes to children. Throughout COVID-19, they created online classes for schools throughout NYC. They hope to continue creating their own work, while also staying engaged with their community.

MANIFESTUR was made in 2020 with the goal of bringing heavy film editing into movement (due to pandemic restrictions). The work is about how one can use their power of imagination and action to bring their dreams to fruition, and be anything.

Marlene Skog’s award winning choreography is recognized for its emotional range, brilliant technique, and intentional fluidity between classical ballet and contemporary dance. Her work unpacks the enduring question of what it means to be human and is purposeful in its strong synthesis of movement, music and message. Skog is an Assistant Professor of Dance at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. EXIT is a compelling quartet that builds around two sets of partners whose emotions intersect confinement, a need to connect and wanting to let go.

You're Fried: A Farewell to 45
Established in 2011, New Breed Dance Company features the diverse talents and creative collaboration of local Colorado dancers. Steeped in style, sensuality, and musicality, New Breed strives to create innovative choreography that is both wildly entertaining and maintains strong artistic integrity. In our newest creation, we celebrate the absurdity of Donald Trump, and our collective obsession with his persona. With humor, wit, and pizazz this film takes you into the mind of Donald Trump, where he is mesmerized, seduced, and ensnared by his own ego. You won't be able to look away from this spectacle!
