Watch in Awe as These Dancers Perform an All-Out Dance Duet

Spend your Saturday evening taking in breathtaking professional dance at Emory University! This Saturday, Another Piece Apart will take the stage at Schwartz Center for Performing Arts. The performance – a dance duet resting in silence – reflects on a history of fractured togetherness and a shared love of dance to blur boundaries between bodies in space. Check it out on February 23rd!

Another Piece Apart is not only a beautiful dance production, but also a study of contrasts. The movement is off-balanced yet precise and multi-focused. The knotted partnering reaches into tones of touch. With every move, the dancers weave an intricate story.

Jennifer Nugent and Paul Matteson premiered their first duet, "Fare Well", at Danspace Project in 2006, beginning an ongoing exploration into partnering that at once honors and challenges personal possibility. They are BESSIE Award-receiving performers who danced together with David Dorfman Dance, Lisa Race, and The Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company.

Jennifer Nugent and Paul Matteson have performances of Another Piece Apart scheduled at New York Live Arts, The Kaatsbaan Center, The Boston Dance Complex, and The University of Virginia, in addition to this performance at Emory University’s Schwartz Center for Performing Arts. Another Piece Apart has received support from New York Live Arts at Live Artery, The Bates Dance Festival, Amherst College, and the School for Contemporary Dance and Thought in Northampton, MA.

Tickets to see Another Piece Apart are $15 and may be purchased online at www.arts.emory.edu, by phone at (404) 727-5050, or in-person at the box office. Attendees eligible for student, senior, alumni, or faculty/staff discounts must purchase tickets in-person or over the phone to receive reduced-price admission.
