Performance & Exhibition

Hola Amigos!

Join me for the upcoming work-in-progress and photo/drawing exhibition of "No more beautiful dances" on: Saturday, April 28th at 6pm at the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art at Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Botanical Garden. (with a 5PM reception preceding the performance).

LIMITED SEATING!!! https://passlenzu.brownpapertickets.com

During Spring 2018, I have been invited to be Artist in Residency for PASS: Performing Arts Salon at Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden to continue developing my new choreographic work “No more beautiful dances.” As a result of this magical experience, I will perform a work-in-progress of “No More Beautiful Dances” and show 16 photographs and drawings. Don’t miss it!

“No more beautiful dances” wrestles with the ideas of exploration, introspection and reframing a woman after becoming a mother, and being an immigrant. Lenzu’s dance theater piece uses drawings, spoken word and video projections to tell a personal vision of femininity, and what it means to be a woman today.

Choreographer and Dancer: Anabella Lenzu

Video Projection Design: Todd Carroll

Direction: Daniel Pettrow

Costumes: Jennifer Johanos

AMAZING Reviews & Photography Exhibition

Hi Friends,

Thanks for celebrating this 10th Anniversary year of Anabella Lenzu/DanceDrama and for being by my side!

Humble, Happy and over the moon to receive these amazing reviews of my work/performance last week at the Argentinean Consulate in NYC. Enjoy them!

1) Attitude: The Dancers' Magazine . Article by Madeleine L. Dale

"Anabella Lenzu presented excerpts from her work of the ten years of her New York-based company, there was a love-fest among critics. We couldn’t help ourselves. We burst with the joy of having seen and experienced stirring, intelligent artistry. "

2) DanceEnthusiast article by Jenny Thompson

http://www.dance-enthusiast.com/features/view/Impressions-10th-anniversary-celebration-anabella-lenzu-dancedrama-argentinean-consulate#.WBI9va0KHe0.facebook

"..Her choreography’s dynamism is fueled by a revolving door of intensity, self-awareness, melodrama, and/or ritual. This holds true whether the movement is more theatric-based, modern, folk-inspired, or a fusion of many forms."

3) New York Arts article by Mari Gold:

http://newyorkarts.net/2016/10/anabella-lenzudancedrama/

"Lenzu has been described as an “Argentine firecracker” which nicely sums up her large, passionate nature as well as her intense commitment to the creative process. She has developed a beautifully integrated approach to dance and theater which will continue to serve her and her fine company going forward."

SAVE THE DATE: Sunday, Nov 13 from 3-6pm. Come and support us!

Stepping Out, a New Photographic Exhibition by Todd Carroll. A new collection of photographs made while wandering about, seeking out quiet, when light trickles down, over and around leaves and trees, restlessly looking for still images.

During the opening there will be photographs for sale to benefit Anabella Lenzu/DanceDrama. FREE. Limited Admission. RSVP required: info@anabellaLenzu.com
