Carolyn Dorfman Dance will celebrate its 40th anniversary with “Dance on Exhibit,” a “retrospective experience” at the Morris Museum in Morris Township, April 13 at 7:30 p.m. and April 15 at 7 p.m. Dancers will perform both in a museum gallery, as kinetic sculpture, and in the museum’s Bickford Theatre.
Featured works in the theater will include excerpts from Dorfman’s “Legacy Project” that explore her Jewish heritage, and her most recent work, 2022’s “The Attitude of Doing,” which is set to the music of jazz violinist Regina Carter.
“I’ve dedicated this 40th Anniversary Season to the memory of my parents,” said Dorfman in a press release. “Mala and Henry Dorfman were Holocaust survivors and immigrants who engendered a deep humanity that has shaped my artistry as well as the art, processes, and values of the entire Carolyn Dorfman Dance family.”
Tickets will include up two glasses of wine, in addition to admission to the gallery and the show. Following the April 15 performance, the company will also host a gala celebration at the Westin Governor Morris hotel.
