Friday, October 26, 2018
7:30 p.m.
City College Center for the Arts- Aaron Davis Hall

Dancer-choreographer Marielis Garcia and collaborative dance company MG DanceArts bring Amass to City College Center for the Arts on Friday, October 26 at 7:30 p.m. Amass, an interactive, multidisciplinary performance featuring three dancers, music, and visual art by Caleb Nussear, was inspired by the current political tension in the United States. Born out of political strife, the piece is designed to help people with vastly different experiences reconnect as human beings through dance. As spectators become a part of the performance, notions of the individual, the group, the past and the future will be tested and explored. Through Amass audience members will ponder the question: Can distinct individuals work together to “amass” a truly collective group? Amass is presented at City College Center for the Arts as part of the CUNY Dance Initiative (CDI).

Tickets: $20 general, $10 students and seniors with ID. For details and tickets, visit or call (212)650-6900.

BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance
The World Premiere of
reeling -> healing
Fall 2018 Season at Triskelion Arts
November 29 - December 1, 2018 at 8pm
Triskelion Arts' Muriel Schulman Theater

BodyStories: Teresa Fellion Dance presents the World Premiere of reeling -> healing at Triskelion Arts' Muriel Schulman Theater,106 Calyer Street, (entrance on Banker St,) Brooklyn, NY 11222, from November 29 - December 1, 2018 at 8pm.

reeling -> healing is an exploration of feelings of frustration and helplessness that can occur as a result of the constant barrage of bad news and hatred that reaches our country. This two-part work discusses how audiences deal with these emotions to find solace while taking action. Original music by Kevin Keller adds to a sense of urgency and the need for community, working in tandem with the choreography to immerse the audience in a fully formed world. Performers and audience connect via The Emotional Architecture of a Bridge, an original concept drawn and created by Teresa Fellion, that is uncovered in the piece via set elements and audience interaction with text. Furthering thoughts of togetherness, which has been an overarching theme in all past BodyStories pieces, reeling -> healing exposes the more vulnerable sides of ourselves through dance.

Tickets are $18 in advance ($22 at the door) and are available at

Triskelion Arts' Muriel Schulman Theater | 106 Calyer Street,
Entrance on Banker St, Brooklyn, NY 11222
