Niles Ford

A Dream Deferred

New York Premier

Dance

Nov 20 - 30, 2003

Niles Ford’s unique hybrid of ballet, modern, jazz and street dance has earned him a reputation as an extraordinarily dynamic dancer/choreographer. A Dream Deferred unfolds like a hip, smooth and effervescent Marvin Gaye album, revisiting the questions posed in the Langston Hughes poem of the same name. This show investigates the cyclical patterns of war and racism through the lens of popular culture. Featuring music by Bjork, Marvin Gaye and Nina Simone as well as original spoken word, Niles Ford and his ensemble embark on a journey that inspires and celebrates new possibilities for the future.
