Thursday June 23, 2011 - Since I wasn't able to attend their Joyce SoHo performances, Henning Rubsam of SENSEDANCE invited photographer Matt Murphy and me to watch a rehearsal this evening. My friend Paul Monaghan is dancing with SENSEDANCE, and so is Max van der Sterre (Paul & Max above, in Matt Murphy's photo).
The SENSEDANCE performances, which took place on the following two evenings, played to full houses. I was glad to have a chance to see Henning's work which melds classic ballet technique with a contemporary accent. The dancers are strong and appealing as individual personalities.
