France colonized the American dance scene in New York City for three nonstop weeks in May of 2000. 10+ dance companies brought over 10 American premieres to theaters ranging from the BAM Opera House to Danspace to The Joyce, to The Kitchen to DTW and the New Victory. The response to the energy, originality and breadth of vision of the French was enormous. We engineered reams of stories and reviews for each of the companies, and news of the festival flooded the media every day it ran. The extent to which the theaters collaborated on this new adventure was singular, and the results still resonate.
