About this event

EMERGE125 NYC Season

May 26-29, 2022 at The Flea Theater

The upcoming season will be the company’s first season after announcing its name change in June 2021.

For the EMERGE125’s May 26-29, 2022 NYC Season, Executive Artistic Director Tiffany Rea-Fisher will present the world premieres of Behavioral Synchrony and Poly String Theory as well as two works-in-progress and a revival with a new opening. Both Behavioral Synchrony and Poly String Theory began when the company was relocated to Lake Placid, NY during the 2020 pandemic so they could continue making work while the city was shut down. Rea-Fisher started creating with only two things in mind; no full company pieces and pairing dancers in her company together who typically do not share the stage. From that, two world premieres were born.

Coming back home to The Flea as a resident company and performing under our new name just feels right. Like many companies, it has been a long time since being able to share our work. The dance field is different, the world is different and we are different. Exploring and celebrating those differences with our NYC audiences is a special gift that I do not take lightly.
~ Tiffany Rea-Fisher, Executive Artistic Director EMERGE125

About EMERGE125

EMERGE125 is a Black female-led hub for dance performance, creation, and education. The organization operates dual homes in Harlem and Lake Placid, New York, while serving audiences both locally and around the world. EMERGE125 has established itself as a leader by setting new standards for dancer care; creating innovative, cross-disciplinary collaborations with leading artists; and using movement as a catalyst for community building: expanding the reach, purpose, and impact of the art of dance. The company has expanded its scope and vision to become a truly 21st Century organization; flourishing, growing, and expanding its network and reach outside of the traditional modern dance sphere. From community dance classes to stadiums filled with thousands of spectators, EMERGE125 demonstrates that modern dance can be accessible and relatable to people of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds.
