DOVA Reunion! And we are Going Ballistic with your help

Doug is creating a new evening-length work, "Ballistics", based on the poems of Billy Collins and with a newly commissioned score by David Van Tieghem. With your support, current and former company members will unite this fall as an ensemble of artists ranging in age from 1-70! Please help us bring back Adriane Fang, Larry Hahn, Natalie Desch, Eddie Taketa, Alex Springer and Xan Burley (with son Jasper), Daniel Charon, Nina Watt (and maybe more) to create and dance with our current company. Performances in NYC's New Ohio Theater in December 2018. Donate: https://www.nycharities.org/give/donate.aspx?cc=1498

“At the heart of every work, is pure dance making and the creative relationship with my dancers is paramount to this process. I work within a very liberal and open atmosphere, and as a result the dancers are great allies in my dance making. They are intuitive interpreters of the work that I imagine. Its this great trust that allows the work to flourish”
- Doug Varone
