Look Who’s Coming to Dinner
Stefanie Batten Bland
Co-presented with La MaMa
When it comes to tackling demanding subject matter, there are few choreographers as intellectually ambitious as Stefanie Batten Bland.”
— New York Resident Magazine, 2012
Jerome Robbins Award–winning choreographer Stefanie Batten Bland makes her Crossing the Line Festival debut with the world premiere of Look Who’s Coming to Dinner.
Inspired by the 1967 Stanley Kramer film in which a black fiancé meets his white soon-to-be wife’s family, the work pays tribute to those who paved the way toward acceptance in love and life. Set around a dinner table, seven dance theater artists explore questions of who we choose to break bread with, and whether long-held biases still shock.
The choreography is set to a new composition by Paul Damien Hogan. Originally developed as a work-in-progress for Juilliard New Dances 2018.
