Nimbus Dance presents The New Americana - a selection of dance rooted in the American Experience (Past, Present & Future)

(JERSEY CITY, NJ) -- Nimbus Dance presents The New Americana from March 31 to April 2 at the Nimbus Arts Center in Jersey City. This is a selection of dance rooted in the American Experience, Past, Present, & Future; featuring the World Premiere of Dawn Marie Bazemore's The New Tide, Darshan Singh Bhuller's Dew Point, and Artistic Director Samuel Pott's Spring.

The New Americana showcases a medley of breathtakingly physical, emotional, and musical performances, including: The New Tide by choreographer Dawn Marie Bazemore (World Premiere) explores the early photography of 20th-century cultural icon: photojournalist, filmmaker, author, and composer Gordon Parks set to the music of legendary Soul and R&B singer Sam Cooke.

Darshan Singh Bhuller's 2018 duet Dew Point, a deeply moving piece that references Bhuller's own experiences and the 1967 Supreme Court Case, Loving v. Virginia, which permitted interracial marriage in the United States.

Nimbus Artistic Director Samuel Pott's Spring, set to Aaron Copland's score Appalachian Spring. Pott's interpretation of this seminal music reflects on the cyclical nature of family, generations, and nature's seasons. One website said the result was "expressive and striking" and that it inspired and evoked a vision of "Americana" that looks both forward and backward.

Performances take place Friday, March 31 at 8:00pm; Saturday, April 1 at 8:00pm; and Sunday, April 2 at 3:00pm.  Tickets are available for purchase online.

"The magic of this program is how it plays on the heartstrings of what it is to be American in this time - the ways that we crave to connect and reconcile with the past; and also to build a new future for ourselves, for our families, and our community. The notion of The New Americana - that who we are is both based in the past and in the future - resounds powerfully and beautifully in these dances." - Samuel Pott, Nimbus Founding Artistic Director

Nimbus Arts Center is located at 329 Warren Street in Jersey City, New Jersey.
