About this project

With our newest completed dance work, Prophets of Funk, David Dorfman Dance (DDD) has brought “humanity, theatricality and good ol’ soul” (CityBeat Cincinnati) to venues all over the country this year. With many more shows to come, we team up this summer for a unique and exciting collaboration with the one, the only, The Family Stone! This funky extravaganza, Prophets of Funk – Concert Edition, will take place live from the Damrosch Park Bandshell at Lincoln Center Out of Doors in New York City on August 11th at 7:30pm (opening act at 7pm). This performance is FREE and open to the public –– all part of David Dorfman’s mission to “get the whole world dancing”.  

What can you do to help? We need you to make this the funkiest, foxiest, most far out performance we can! Your contribution to DDD will help make this one of a kind event possible by directly aiding in the collaboration with The Family Stone and the continuing development of Prophets of Funk during and after our performance at Lincoln Center. Many budget items like sound-design, rehearsal and travel costs, artist salaries, and more are still needed to make this exclusive New York summer event a success! As Deborah Jowitt of the Village Voice said, “Dorfman in league with Sly and the Family Stone? Irresistible…”
