ChORDED Motion

Media Title

The Philly-based New Street Dance Group are expertly stringing music and movement together in their latest collaboration, ChORDED Motion. Accompanied by a string quartet directed by cellist Jonathan Cain, the performance consists of more than 20 dancers and a collection of six short dance ensembles which make use of not only choreographed movement, but spoken word, props and set design elements to explore the intersection where the live string quartet’s chords meet the dancers’ motions.

Co-directors (and former college roommates) Shannon Dooling and Krista Armbruster have been performing and pursuing careers in the arts long before NSDG’s founding in 2009. ChORDED Motion marks the group’s Fringe Festival debut, featuring dancers from DeSales University—where Armbruster received her B.A. in dance—as well as NSDG’s own.

Considering their memorable past performances that include A Brewed Day, a seven-minute-long trio piece inspired by a cup of morning Joe, and the recent Superluminous, a suspenseful ensemble that followed five pairs of dancers as they form relationship onstage and work with and against one another, New Street Dance Group’s dynamism and trademark accessibility makes this provocative staging a Fringe Fest must-see. / LAUREN ARUTE
