Then and Again is an exploration of nostalgia. Through excavation of the personal memories of the performers, choreographer, and residents of President Street, a cast of characters evolves to represent the congruent nostalgic longings of two generations.

The work explores the irreversibility of the past in conjunction with the urge to recreate it. The intimate creative process of Then and Again illuminates the distinct characteristics of nostalgia as subjective, romanticized and idealized - serving ultimately as an autobiographical memory. Then and Again, is the culmination of Julie Bordonaro’s MFA thesis at University Wisconsin, Milwaukee.

Risks and challenges

So far the challenges of creating Then and Again have not been unique to the project, but rather representative of the hardships of creating dance in New York City. The challenges have included space rentals for rehearsal, limited time from start to finish of the project, and limited financial resources to fund the dancers for rehearsal time.

None of these challenges will stand in the way of production of Then and Again but stand as a testament to the dedication of the cast of performers and collaborators.
