About the Company

 

THE BANG GROUP is a rhythm-driven, New York-based dance company which spans contemporary and percussive forms. The company, founded and directed by Jeffrey Kazin and David Parker celebrates its 24th anniversary this season. TBG has toured and performed widely throughout North America and Europe appearing at The Holland Dance Festival, Konfrontace in Prague, Tanzsprache in Vienna, Dance Week in Zagreb, Monte Carlo Dance Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival (2006, 2009 and 2014,) Biennale Charleroi in Belgium, Tanzemesse in Essen, Germany (2000 and 2016,) Fondation Cartier in Paris, OT 301 in Amsterdam, Divadelna Nitra in Slovakia, Belluard Bollwerk in Switzerland and numerous cities in Italy. The company has been generously supported by The Jerome Robbins Foundation, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, Doris Duke Foundation, New York Foundation for the Arts, Harkness Foundation, Tiger Baron Foundation, Mid Atlantic Arts Fund, Greenwall Foundation, Arts International, Fund for Mutual Understanding, Netherland- America Foundation, Pentacle's ARC Fund, Frederick Loewe Foundation and several private donors. It is presented regularly in New York City by New York Live Arts and its predecessor Dance Theater Workshop, Danspace Project, Dance Now NYC, Symphony Space, The Harkness Dance Festival and the 92nd Street Y, among many others. The Bang Group has made its second home in Boston through sustained partnerships with Summer Stages Dance (13 seasons), The ICA, and The Dance Complex. The company is also in residence annually at The Yard on Martha's Vineyard and at The West End Theater on Manhattan's upper west side and has recently become an Anchor Partner at the new Flea Theater in Manhattan. It supports and presents the work of a wide range of artists through its thrice-yearly series called Soaking WET at the West End Theater and its Dance Now Boston initiative which commissions new work created for cabaret spaces and enters its fifth annual season in June 2018.  Next month, TBG will reprise its much-praised program of dances by Parker, James Waring and Aileen Passloff reflecting on Parker's artistic forebears at the 92nd Street Y, and is creating a new music/dance work composed by Pauline Kim Harris to premiere at The Stone in NYC in July.  www.thebanggroup.com or follow us on FaceBook.
