johannes wieland brings "newyou" back to New York, revisiting the lies that create the story-- and our lives

You are in deep denial...

The New York based dancers of johannes wieland will present a re-staging of newyou, the company's 2008 full length piece December 21st and 22nd at the Cunningham Studios

.... about johannes wieland

The company johannes wieland articulates and gives shape to the vision of its founder/choreographer, Johannes Wieland. Wieland's choreography employs an architecturally driven understanding of bodies, movement and space probing deeply into the human psyche to create an abstract, metaphorically rich repertory for his company. 

johannes wieland premiered in 2002 with a sold-out run in New York City and has since attained reputable acclamation and received several prestigious awards.

.... about newyou

In the twisted world of newyou, all is not what it seems as the cast of five performers embrace their surreal surroundings and attempt to find happiness -- at any cost. Based on choreographer Johannes Wieland's fascination of deceit and our desire for achieving a positive mental and emotional state ultimately built on lies, newyou is a dance theater piece which begs the question:       

is the presence of denial and its diversified outcomes necessarily a bad thing?

.... what you can do for newyou

In order to build a performance as richly complicated as newyou, a great deal of time exploring movement in the studio is necessary. You can help us make sure Isadora, Eva, Kristin, Beth, Jon, and Johannes have ample time in the studio and on stage to explore the world of newyou, and bring to life the complicated layers of lies, and lies upon lies, this December at the Cunningham Studios. 

... what can newyou do for you

For your donation to newyou, you will receive a tangible reward for your donation above $25, but you will also have the satisfaction that you are helping artists create and present their work. 

And we are sure you will enjoy the world of newyou when you attend the performances on December 21st and 22nd at the Cunningham Studios. See you there!
