Commissions and Education

After her first dance-on-ice, The Dreame, premiered on Ice Theater of NY at Rockefeller Center in February, Buglisi traveled to Charlotte, NC to rehearse North Carolina Dance Theatre in her duet Threshold for performances in Charlotte’s Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. The front-page article in the April issue of the Juilliard Journal, Language Without Words: The Symbiosis of Dance and the Visual Arts by Greta Berman, featured Buglisi and her dances inspired by female visual artists. Foreman taught a weeklong workshop at Ballet Divertimento in Montreal and restaged Lisa D. at Marymount Manhattan College. For Spring 2003, NCDT has commissioned him to set his duet So I May Say on their company.


This Fall…

Buglisi/Foreman Dance is gearing up for a very busy 2002-2003 Season beginning in September.

  • September-November: One of the Company’s signature pieces Suspended Women will be restaged for SUNY Purchase as part of a choreographic commission. Performances at the Pepsi Co Theater are November 15, 16 & 17, 2002.
  • September 15th–22nd, Consultant Workshop: Donlin will travel to the Alabama School of Fine Arts to develop a dynamic contemporary dance curriculum for its emerging modern dance department, and will conduct master classes at the University of Alabama.

  • October-November: The Company will perform at Kaatsbaan International Dance Center in Tivoli, NY on October 19 & 20 and November 2 & 3 and will conduct a three-week creative residency, with generous funding from the New York State Council on the Arts and individual contributions, to develop new works for premiere during the Joyce Season in February 2003.

Company Residency
A Place as a Collaborator

“Kaatsbaan” is beautiful landscapes and generous people producing a divine and inspirational environment, fertile ground for choreographing new dances. The Company is planning a three-week creative and educational residency at the Kaatsbaan International Dance Center in Tivoli, NY, Fall 2002. For ten years B/FD has been deeply involved in the successful development of this inspiring place. The residency includes: the creation of a new dance, master classes, open rehearsals, and a lecture demonstration. Culminating in a performance, it will nurture our relationship with the community, expand our outreach program, and communicate with a wider audience.
