BOUNCE Orbit, from Brooklyn, New York Comes to Germany
Eva Dean Dance (EDD) is thrilled to present BOUNCE Orbit in the 2015 FRiNGE Recklinghausen. Direct from Brooklyn, NY USA to Recklinghausen, Germany, EDD’s BOUNCE Orbit pushes the boundaries of Dance Theater. This collection of dance vignettes featuring “Balls” dances was awarded “Best of Fringe New York” in the 2012 Amsterdam Fringe Festival.
BOUNCE Orbit is a captivating theatrical experience inspired by serene orbiting planets, floating constellations, a Busby Berkeley inspired water ballet, a genie balanced on a pearl, and a mysterious Egyptian moon garden. The dances in BOUNCE Orbit are from Dean’s BOUNCE repertory from 2002-2012 that feature experimental dances examining the cosmos, water, and kinetic energy. Five performers use a kaleidoscopic assortment of balls as dancing partners that extend movement possibilities and transform space and time. The work is visually cinematic and viscerally responsive to life’s gravitational ebbs and flows. BOUNCE Orbit is a unique one-of-a-kind production for adventurous audiences ages 5 to 105.
BOUNCE in all its different iterations has been performed both nationally (USA) and internationally since 2002. Some of its performing credits include in New York City - The New York International Fringe Festival, Joyce SoHo, City Center, Dance Theater Workshop, and Kupferberg Center. Nationally (USA) performance credits include Carol Autorino Center in Hartford, CT, First Night Boston, and Bay Street Theater in New York State. Internationally EDD has performed BOUNCE in Dubai United Arab Emirates, Amsterdam Fringe, Netherlands, and at Praha Fringe, CZK.

“Dean’s wild energy [breaks] free of expected bounds."
Linda Arlene Small, The Village Voice
“… elegant performing, inventive choreography…lighthearted, decorous dance full of counterbalances and gentle supports for falling bodies…it reminded me of why, sometimes, dance matters: in its very lightness, it lifts our cares.”
Elizabeth Zimmer, The Village Voice
Eva Dean Dance is “…an unalloyed delight” with an “infinite-seeming range of lithe expressive physicality."
Jennifer Dunning, The New York Times
"It is my firm belief that Eva Dean Dance is making a difference in Dance, and the perception of dance, among a new generation of audience members."
Elena K. Holy, Producing Artistic Director, The New York International Fringe Festival
