Tom Gold Dance Brings New Works to The Forefront

Tom Gold Dance

Tom Gold Dance presented its sixth annual New York City season, this week at the Gerald W. Lynch Theater at John Jay College of Criminal Justice with a program of three recent and new works-Company Prermieres of Oasis and Served; and the world premiere of Counterpoint, from Tom Gold Dance Founder and director Tom Gold.

Tom Gold Dance
Oasis was commissioned by the St. Louis Ballet as part of its October 8 2016 Vision: Where Ballet and Fashion Meet program at the Touhill Performing Arts Center pairing three choreographers with three emerging fashion designers. Set to John Zorn’s Lucifer from the Book of Angels, Oasis explores the composer’s exotic and jazz-infused constructions through an imagined group meeting at a desert retreat. Oasis completes Gold’s Zoran trilogy, following Shanti (2003) and La Plage (20013).
Gold began to develop Served in July 2016 as a participant in the 13th annual National Choreographers Initiative (NCI) in Irvine, California, while watching a tennis match on television. Gold observed similarities to ballet, not only in the sport’s raw physicality and intensity, but also its rhythm, balance, technical discipline and virtuosity. Set to Schubert’s demanding Wanderer FantasyServed explores these qualities through the articulated steps of a “dancers’ club.”  Allen Noelle, Zachary Guthier and Evan Sweson who appeared in Servedat the NCI’s culminating public workshop presentation at the Irvine Barclay Theatre, July 30, 2016, reprised their roles in the Company Premiere at the Lynch. Served was performed to live accompaniment.
Internationally recognized dancer, choreographer, and instructor Tom Gold is the Founder and Artistic Director of Tom Gold Dance. Each season he brings a special and imaginative program to New York audiences.
