The company returns to Triskelion Arts in Brooklyn, NY for an evening of new work by EMD's newly appointed Artistic Director, Tiffany Rea-Fisher. The choreography aims to expose the human behind the performer, accentuating a particular artist’s eccentricities and oddities while creating space for the audience to insert themselves into the work and take ownership of their own interpretation.
“…Rea-Fisher’s choreography is intricate, varying from understated to explosive in a matter of moments. She is well versed in the Monte aesthetic - athletic and leggy with a velvety, sensual texture. However, Rea-Fisher pushed the familiar tone further with off-kilter balances and moments of fury, brought Elisa Monte Dance into the future, creating a distinctive artistic path for its newly appointed leader.”
