Keigwin + Company’s PLACES PLEASE!
Highlights the 7th annual DANCE NOW Holiday Celebration at SteelStacks
Featuring Contemporary Dance Artists, Nicole Wolcott and Larry Keigwin, along with Students of the Lehigh Valley Charter High School for the Arts
“Nicole and Larry's differences - their artistic tension - makes them the perfect fit. When their individual energies came together in a final celebratory pas de deux, the energy shook the entire room into a frenzy.” Broadway Dance, May 2017
Celebrate the season with Places Please!, as DANCE NOW SteelStacks, a partnership between DANCENOW and ArtsQuest, presents its 7th annual holiday show Friday, December 15, 8 p.m., in the Musikfest Café of the ArtsQuest Center, 101 Founders Way, Bethlehem.
A DANCE NOW Commission for Joe’s Pub at The Public in New York City, PLACES PLEASE! reunites the choreographic collaborative team of Nicole Wolcott and Larry Keigwin of Keigwin + Company in a full evening duet. PLACES PLEASE! is a zany trip with Keigwin and Wolcott during the final moments before the curtain goes up. The audience witnesses the anxiety and playfulness of life behind the scenes as if observing from backstage. The new work celebrates and extends the creative relationship that served as KEIGWIN + COMPANY’s foundation during its burgeoning years. Presented as dreamscape and sonic collage, the evening explores the parallel and intersecting paths of the creative process, relationship and aging of two very dynamic and vibrant artists. Students from the Lehigh Valley Charter School for the Arts will be featured in PLACES PLEASE!, created specifically for them by Wolcott and Keigwin this fall.

In 2010, DANCE NOW began a partnership with ArtsQuest, a non-profit in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania to bring New York City’s most exciting dance innovators to the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks.
DANCE NOW SteelStacks kicked off with a bang in 2011, presenting David Parker’s and The Bang Group’s ShowDown at the MusikFest Café, the Joe’s Pub of Lehigh Valley. DANCE NOW SteelStacks then launched Free Friday’s in the Creativity Commons to introduce our diverse roster of dance innovators in an informal, meet-the-artist-series.
