Event Description

New York Theatre Ballet (NYTB) continues it long-running series Dance on a Shoestring, now held at the company’s new home at St. Mark’s Church-in-the-Bowery, 131 East 10th Street, NYC on Friday, January 23 and Saturday, January 24 at 7pm.  Tickets are $15 and are available by calling (212) 679-0401 or at the door on the day of the performance.  Please note that seating is limited and reservations are recommended.  For more information, please visit


Dance on a Shoestring is an intimate evening of dance held in the company’s home, The Dance Gallery. The community series showcases ballets from New York Theatre Ballet's current season, works in progress by contemporary and emerging choreographers, and children of Ballet School NY.


This Dance on a Shoestring will feature guest artists The Bang Group and Pepper Fajans.


The Bang Group will present two of its most popular rhythm pieces.  Slapstuck is a comic and intimate dance in which two gentlemen clad in neck-to-toe Velcro bespoke suits attempt to negotiate a little independence while generating rhythms through sticking and ripping apart.  Two Left Feet is a duet for a man and woman who negotiate their contrapuntal relationship through a translation of Steve Reich's “Clapping Music" into a dance for a barefoot couple.


Performers explore variations in movement and design in Pepper Fajans’ Space Available, a scalable theater of objects that brings together dance, puppetry, live music, and environment. Each show is built from a changing roster of elements contributed by members of the diversely capable cast and the performances are influenced by the space in which it takes place and is modified in response to the performing conditions. Audiences witness performers discovering the nuances of theatrical circumstances.
