Carolyn Dorfman Dance Company: Known as a creator of evocative
dances that reflect her concerns about the human condition, Dorfman is interested in creating "worlds" into which
the audience can enter. CDDC's high energy and technically demanding repertory uses movement as metaphor to take audiences
on what one reviewer described as "intellectual and emotional journeys." She has created stunning pieces that reflect
a spirit and passion for life, people and truth, survival and renewal. Hailed as the consummate storyteller, Dorfman, a child
of Holocaust survivors, has also created a celebrated body of work that honors her Jewish legacy; its trials and triumphs,
its treasured uniqueness and, most importantly, its universal connections.
Since founding her Company, Dorfman has created more than 60 works for her 10 member ensemble, which appears
at major theaters, dance festivals, universities and schools regionally, nationally and internationally and is lauded for
its artistry and exceptional arts education and community programming. The Company, described by critics as "ingenious"
(The Star-Ledger) and "emotionally resonant" (The New York Times), presents new and repertory works by Ms. Dorfman
and regularly commissions original scores and artistic collaborations.
