“Gems of movement and textThe Irish Times

THE WHITE PIECE, from Ireland's John Scott Dance, is a vital, fluent dance that admits no boundaries—part documentary, part poetry, 14 dancers, backgrounds ranging from Merce Cunningham Dance Company to a retired Royal Ballet ballerina to African Torture Survivors, show, with humor and athleticism, the presence of everything: what we do and dream, for today and tomorrow.

Irish contemporary choreographer John Scott returns to New York City with The White Piece. He is the artistic director of Irish Modern Dance Theatre, and pioneers new expression and expands the dance experience in Ireland, playing with every theatrical and dance convention. 

Dancers include: Cheryl Therrien (ex Merce Cunningham), Ashley Chen (Ex Merce Cunningham) Joanna Banks (ex Royal Ballet) Philip Connaughton, Rebecca Reilly, Immaculate Akello, Crinela Oiplea, Poudima Florence Welalo, Patience Nahme, James Hosty
