COMING UP NEXT
December 5, 2017: the premiere of the first version of David's newest solo, at Dixon Place in New York City!
Stay tuned...additional performances and projects are on the way!
March 17 and 19, 2017: the 40-minute-long Little Dances in Uncertain Times, with Darla Stanley, Jenni Hong, Elise Knudson, Megan Harrold, and David Appel, premiered as part of a Split Bill at Triskelion Arts in Brooklyn, NY.
November 3, 2015: The first draft of sparks off the tips of our fingers, a new 25-minute-long solo created and performed by David Appel, premiered at Dixon Place in New York City as part of the Under Exposed series.
May 9, 2015: Off the Shelf (a bookstore project) was premiered at the P.S. Bookshop in Brooklyn, NY, with dancers David Appel and Darla Stanley, and actor/reader Eric Chase. Each of the four approximately 15-minute-long sets featured new short pieces made from diverse mixes of set and improvised dancing, at times weaving in original and encountered text.
May 9-10, 2014: The World is Spinning (and so are we), a new 52-minute work comprised of numerous short small group pieces for 5 dancers, was premiered at the Emily Harvey Foundation in New York City. The performances were notable for (among other things) the audience's placement in the middle of the space, so that the action unfolded around and above them.
June 5, 2013: David, his current work, and the trajectory of his 40-year career were the subject of an hour-long edition of New Arts Alive on Berks Community Television (BCTV) in Reading, PA. He was interviewed by James Carroll, Director of the New Arts Program in Kutztown, PA.
June 4, 2013: more than a murmur, David's third collection of new short pieces for a small group of dancers, premiered on opening night of the Dance Conversations 2013 festival at the Flea Theater (New York City).
April 2, 2013: the long and short of it, a second collection of new relatively short small group pieces, was premiered as part of the Under Exposed series at Dixon Place (New York City).
January 30February 2, 2013: Five by Five (moon she be struttin), David's first collection of new short small group pieces, was performed on 5 shared programs to mostly packed houses as part of RAW Directions at Dance New Amsterdam (New York City).
