Dancenoise: Don’t Look Back

Their legendary stage shows—built on manic choreography, indiscriminate violence, biting up-to-the-minute social commentary, and precise comedic timing—made them, in the words of downtown performance legend Tom Murrin, “the premier practitioners of synchronized aggression.” DANCENOISE performed in many New York clubs and theaters including WOW Cafe, the Pyramid, 8BC, Performance Space 122, Franklin Furnace, and the Kitchen, and went on to tour nationally and internationally, presenting their work at Lincoln Center and winning a NY Dance and Performance Bessie Award.

This week-long presentation will include the premiere of a new live performance, a retrospective installation of their iconic shows, and a curated evening in which DANCENOISE reimagines the famed King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, an East Village bar where they organized and hosted a weekly performance series in the 1980s.

DANCENOISE: Don’t Look Back is organized by Jay Sanders, Curator and Curator of Performance, with Greta Hartenstein, curatorial assistant.
