What will we be like when we get there

Alumni Gymnasium

What will we be like when we get there is a multi-disciplinary performance collaboration, with choreographer/dancer Joanna Kotze, dancer Omagbitse Omagbemi, visual artist Jonathan Allen, and composer/musician Ryan Seaton that combines movement, sound, and visual art in surprising ways and resonates with the social and political time we are living in now. Created during the aftermath of the 2016 US presidential election, this work investigates physical, emotional, and artistic spectrums while reflecting on personal journeys and current events – bringing attention to our desires, flaws, strengths, and fantasies.

Joanna Kotze is a Brooklyn-based dancer, choreographer and teacher who has been part of the New York dance community since 1998. She was awarded the 2013 New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” for Outstanding Emerging Choreographer. Joanna is on teaching faculty at Movement Research and Gibney Dance. She has taught at Barnard College, NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, Eugene Lang College – The New School for Liberal Arts, Long Island University, Southern Utah University, Ohio University, Miami University Ohio, Salt Dance Fest and the American Dance Festival.

“Kotze takes advantage of every part of the New York Live Arts Theater, immersing the audience in the vast unpredictability of life in the twenty-first century through an exhilarating controlled chaos”. – This Week in New York

“A mind capable of transforming a familiar space into something eerie and unrecognizable.”—New York Times
