About Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company
The critically acclaimed New York-based Daniel Gwirtzman Dance Company is known for its infectiously charismatic and playfully virtuosic work. For more than 15 years DGDC's world-class dancers have presented high-quality and diverse programming, blending robust physicality with universally relatable themes. DGDC has been awarded residencies by the Joyce Theater Foundation, The Yard, Djerassi Resident Artists Program, Raumars (Finland) and the Sacatar Foundation (Brazil) among others. Choreographer Daniel Gwirtzman has created more than 100 repertory works and is sought after nationally as a teacher and choreographer. Committed to a philosophy that everyone can enjoy dance, DGDC has partnered with various institutions, including the NYC Department of Education, since 1999, reaching over 15,000 students.
DGDC made its full program debut as a Company in New York in the summer of 1999. Reviewing Daniel Gwirtzman's ambitious Plasma Field at the un-air conditioned Merce Cunningham Studios during a record heat wave, Madeleine Dale reviewed the evening-length premiere in Attitude:The Dancers' Magazine:
"Even the audience suffered for its art, and it was glorious, absolutely spellbinding. Even if we have to wait another three years, it will be worth it."
Waiting has not been a part of the Company's vocabulary however. Rather, it has continued to produce dance without pause. That said, this season marks the Company's first multi-performance season since 2009's Encore, an official selection of the New York Musical Theater Festival at MMAC. 2010's season full production The Lecture was a one-night only event at The Ailey Theater, as was 2013's Narcissus and Other Myths at Abrons Arts Center. These past years the Company has focused its resources on performances outside New Yorkthe Company made its debut at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival and the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival in 2012commissions, community partnership projects and residencies.
