Battery Dance Company, a performing arts group from New York, will give a Thailand debut performance which also features 100 Thai youth at Chulalongkorn University's Sodsai Pantoomkomol Centre for Dramatic Arts on July 9 at 7pm.
Presented by the US embassy, the show will portray how a dance company can be as socially relevant as it is artistically excellent.
Battery Dance Company is known for its simply gorgeous, entrancing productions and supple, technically perfect dancers and as an organisation committed to social progress at home and abroad.
Since its founding in 1976, the company has brought more than 100 dance pieces to life, performed extensively in 40 countries, mentored more than 200,000 public school students through its "Dancing to Connect" programme.
The programme lets students experience the full arc of the creative process, from the first spark of an idea to the final curtain call. The students work with the company teaching artists in intensive choreographic workshops that culminate in student performances of works they themselves have created.
Also in Bangkok, the company will conduct workshops for underprivileged children. They will try in less than a week to teach and train kids who have no experience in dancing to perform on July 9 in front of the audience.
There is no admission charge but reservations are required. Call 081-430-6684.
