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