Roy Assaf Dance
Israeli company Roy Assaf Dance makes its New York debut with a program of intricate and nuanced works: Six Years Later is a duet meditating on a mysterious connection, and The Hill, a powerful all-male trio, is inspired by the experiences of war veterans. One of the most sought-after emerging choreographic voices today, Assaf has received commissions from companies across the globe, including Batsheva Dance Company, The Royal Swedish Ballet, National Dance Company Wales, and LA Dance Project.
Roy Assaf Dance's premiere U.S. tour, with partnering performances at Baryshnikov Arts Center (NYC), CityDance (Bethesda, MD), and Dance Place (Washington, DC), is made possible through the ArtsCONNECT program of Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation with support from the National Endowment for the Arts. Generous support has also been provided by the Israel Institute, Washington, D.C. and Israel’s Office of Cultural Affairs in North America. Lead support of dance programming at BAC is provided by the Rudolf Nureyev Endowment. Major support for dance programming and activities provided by the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and Harkness Foundation for Dance.
