Happy New Year!








Happy New Year from Treehouse Shakers! 2015 was a wonderful year for Treehouse Shakers. We celebrated our 18th performance season (Wow). We also had a wonderful year full of touring, facilitating school residencies, performances and exciting awards. Most recently, Treehouse Shakers was selected as roster artists for New York State Presenters Network, a distinguished honor that will increase our touring for the 2016-2017 Season. We have also been selected as the recipients of the CUNY DanceInitiative for the work of Under theTangle at BMCC’s Tribeca Performing Arts Center this December. FlushingTown Hall in Queens awarded us with a space grant for the creation of our new work for the very young, Olive and Pearl. We are also proud of the prestigious New York Emmy won by Alex & The Kaleidoscope television show, in which Treehouse Shakers created and performed the dance segments. What an extraordinary year!

Now that it is the new year, we are gearing up for the Brooklyn premiere of Under the Tangle at the beautiful BAM/Fisher January 21-24, 2016. The work is being presented as the culmination to the BAM PDP that Treehouse participated in for 2014-2015. After a full fall of touring the work, I love witnessing Under the Tangle's artistic evolution. With each new run, Emily Bunning, the creator and choreographer, adds another level of artistic excellence to the show. This is one of those pieces that feels incredibly nourishing for our children's aesthetics. I applaud Emily and our beautiful company members for their dedication and hard work to this piece (and to the overall vision of our company). If you are in the New York City area over the performance run, I truly hope you will come to see this wonderful work, either by yourself, or as a family. Performance details below.
