Tom Gold Dance Company
Dance is back at the JCC! For its debut at the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan, Tom Gold Dance will present two pieces: the first complete, in-person performance of Portraits and the world premiere of B-shert, a new work, both created by company founder and director Tom Gold.
Set to chamber music by Czech composer Bohuslav Martinu, Portraits was inspired by The Morgan Library & Museum’s 2020 retrospective, David Hockney: Drawing from Life. Tom Gold Dance premiered Portraits in February 2021 in a livestreamed performance from the Nave of the Church of the Heavenly Rest in NYC.
B-shert, a newer Gold work set to selections from the Gnossiennes for solo piano of Erik Satie, premiered this past August. Gold is expanding the work to incorporate themes from the Bless: Design for Good exhibition currently on display at The Laurie M. Tisch Gallery at the JCC.
