Thank you to everyone who came out and supported the company last Thursday night at New York Live Arts. The dancers were graceful and strong, the choreography thoughtful and witty, the audience attentive and thrilled. We could not have done it without the amazing artists and collaborators that worked tirelessly to create an unforgettable performance: Lighting designer Clifton Taylor, composers David Van Tieghem and Pavel Zustiak, projection designer Paul Lieber, and costume designer Naomi Luppescu.
FIRM. THOUGHTFUL. WITTY. PUNK. TRANSPORTED. POWERFUL.
After the performance, patrons were bused to the beautiful Manhattan Penthouse, where they enjoyed cocktails, dinner, and an exclusive art auction. Gala Co-Chairs Jeff Lee and Paul Ukena organized a wonderful event; their impeccable taste and devotion to the company was remarkable. Thank you to everyone involved in making Elisa Monte Dance's 33rd Annual Gala such a success!
