Dance PARTY! Dance 2 Dance @ Art Helix 4/18/15 ! — Spring Circus Cabaret @ Big Sky Works 4/24-25/15! Sarah Chien and Floor Friends Command BUSHWICK!
Remarkable Choreographer/Dancer SARAH CHIEN sent some WONDERFUL NEWS:
I moved to Bushwick/Ridgewood just over two years ago and this spring its really proving to be a vibrant artistic home for me. In the next couple weeks, I’ve got two “indie” performances that would be a great way for you to see a bit of this neighborhood’s arts scene. And if you keep scrolling below, I’ve also included info on a new dance film I recently released and my upcoming teaching gigs. Looking forward to seeing you soon!
Dance 2 Dance @ Art Helix
Saturday April 18th: 8pm doors/9:30 performances/11pm dance party
I’ll be presenting a new improvised installation, meditating on how we transform an unfamiliar place into a home. I may be soliciting contributions of pocket-sized objects that you might place somewhere you were trying to make feel like your own- feel free to bring something personal!
Dance 2 Dance is an all night dance and art experience beginning with site specific dance performances and ending in an immersive dance party. There are a lot of great peers of mine on the line-up.

Spring Circus Cabaret @ Big Sky Works
Friday April 24th at 8:30, Saturday April 25th at 4:30
I’ve been pushing myself to develop a contemporary circus piece, exploring movement on aerial silks the same way I would as a dancer on the ground. This’ll be my third time performing Big Sky Works, where the cabarets always present a great variety of circus acts in a fun and supportive environment for a mix of amateurs and professional performers. The intimate space makes you feel like you’re right underneath the action, and there’s a cash bar!
- 29 Wythe Ave
- Brooklyn, New York 11211
Cash tickets at the door (arrive about 20 min in advance), probably $15
Now available on vimeo
I’ve set a personal goal of collaborating my dance postcards with a local musician in each place. The first of this new effort to up the ante is my most complex dance postcard to date. I worked with NYC-based musician Jordan Chiolis to repurpose an existing track. This film was a semi-finalist in Republique Internacional Des Arts’ Dance& online competition. I’m currently looking for opportunities to share and show it- so please reach out if you know of anything!
Teaching with Floor Friends
Tuesdays in April 5-7pm @ Chez Bushwick

Happy FINALLY Spring!
