REVIEW: DanceNOW [NYC] Festival at Joe’s Pub

Joe’s Pub is my new venue crush. Instead of local bands as the accompaniment to dinner and drinks, why not see ten shorter selections from New York choreographers? I am all for it. This informal, small stage allows the choreographers a unique and momentary chance to carve their work to suit the space. Not just any piece is right for dining viewers, and the corner stage only allows for a few bodies. Tonight, the first night of four in the DanceNOW [NYC] Festival, offered a variety of diverse voices, but serendipitously some repeating trends arose. The format is satisfying because in a field where often pieces drone on, these short 5 minute appearances are glimpses that leave you wanting more. Out of ten selections, several stood out above the crowd.
