Celebrating Three Decades of Fridays at Noon, 1987-2017: Over 60 Choreographers Present Original Dances, Excerpts and Improvs

“All dance is too long,” proclaimed Doris Humphrey, modern dance pioneer and the 92Y dance center’s first director in 1945.

Jane Kosminsky, the originator of 92Y's Fridays at Noon will introduce the festival on May 19. The first performance in 1987, New Companies, New Worlds with choreography by Mark Haim, Katherine Howard, Judy Landis and Michael Schumacher will be screened. ‘Remembrances’ will be read. Each performance will conclude with a lively (short) group improvisation.

Celebrate Fridays at Noon, 1986-2016, with a raucous string of short choreographies by Fridays at Noon artists seen over the decades.
