The Dance Cartel: ONTHEFLOOR
By The Dance Cartel
After an epic weekend this spring, ONTHEFLOOR is back! Driven equally by pumping bass, glitter, dance heroism and feats of endurance, this 90-minute, energy-busting experience is part dance, part video installation, part DJ set and part concert.
11/10 – FrenchY • 11/11 – Begbick
Featured Guest Artists
11/10 – Niki Luparelli (Strip Zeppelin, Oh You Pretty Things!)
11/11 – Grace McLean (The Great Comet)
and Grooversity both nights!
The Dance Cartel is the brainchild of choreographer Ani Taj who came up with the idea after visiting Brazil during Carnaval. Having experienced the joy of that communal experience, she hoped to find a way of capturing it in performances back in the States. The shows she came up with began performing in various spaces in New York, before settling in at Liberty Hall in Manhattan’s Ace Hotel. It is there that their shows have developed what The New York Times describes as “a cool-kid following.”
