Dance New Amsterdam will host the world premiere of choreographer Julian Barnett’s evening-length commission, Super Natural, November 18 to 21 at the DNA Theater, 280 Broadway, New York City. Barnett will also teach two-hour workshops on November 1, 3, and 5 at 10:00 a.m. as part of DNA’s ongoing Modern Guest Artist Series.
Super Natural is described as “a work of abstract possibility that investigates the cohabitation of open and closed realms.” Barnett, joined by Phina Pipia, Justin Ternullo, Jocelyn Tobias, and musician Chris Powers, will “embody the space, traversing specific states of being through both individual and collective memory and discovery.”
Barnett began choreographing in 2005 and founded the Julian Barnett Project as a vehicle for his work. Born in Tokyo and raised in California, he grew up break dancing and playing the guitar and later studied at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. With more than 10 years in New York as a performer, choreographer, and teacher, Barnett has seen his choreography presented throughout North America, Europe, and Asia and has received numerous commissions.
