Montclair’s The Moving Architects performs in the area
The Moving Architects, a Montclair-based dance company led by Erin Carlisle Norton, is performing in Jersey City, Boston, and in New York City in April.
The performances celebrate the company’s 10th-anniversary season. Norton established the company in Chicago as a female-centric dance company, dedicated to creating and performing dance works “that combine charged movement and feminine strength to channel the authentic complexity of both the current and historically lived female experience,” according to a release. Norton re-established TMA in New Jersey in 2013.
TMA’s 10th-anniversary season also includes the continuation of the company’s dance interview podcast, “Movers & Shapers: A Dance Podcast,” which interviews various “shapers” of the dance field, and the launching of a new community outreach movement program, led by director Norton. Norton herself received a 2014 Choreographic Fellowship from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts.
Among the works in the 2017-2018 season is “Americana,” which investigates the migrating American family during the Depression and includes video projection from Montclair-based artist Gwen Charles. TMA performs on April 7 and 8 in Jersey City; on April 21 and 22 in Boston and Cambridge, and April 29 and 30 in New York City. For more information, visit themovingarchitects.org.
