Brooklyn, NY – Galapagos Artspace is thrilled to once again host 60x60 Dance
– a multimedia extravaganza pairing 60 composers with 60 choreographers for
an electrifying tour of today's music and dance styles. Envisioned by 60x60
project director Robert Voisey and choreographer Jeramy Zimmerman, these
one-of-a-kind performances consist of 60 modern dance pieces set to 60
different and brand-new one-minute compositions, making unusual and
unexpected use of the space in Galapagos. Expect a full immersion
experience, with dancers climbing out of the waters, onto the walls,
dangling from balconies and sometimes even taking the stage. Dance
influences include postmodern, ballet, dancehall and more while music ranges
from electronic to ambient, neo-romantic, jazz, pop and text-sound. Each
night features a different hour of music and new set of choreographies.
60x60 Dance will take place on Tuesday, April 7 at 8 PM and Wednesday, April
8 at 8 PM. Galapagos Artspace is located at 16 Main Street in Brooklyn, New
York. Admission is $10.

a masterpiece of organization. The idea — 60 new dance pieces are
performed to 60 new pieces of music, each lasting no more than 60 seconds —
is quite mad. But it’s this kind of madness that makes the cultural world go

-Roslyn Sulcas, The New York

styles and techniques, making for a fast-speed, exhilarating event which

composers, and then assigned to an equally varied mix of New York-based
choreographers assembled by Jeramy Zimmerman.

Conceived by Vox Novus, 60x60 Dance is a collaborative series whose mission
is to produce and disseminate new music to a large and diverse audience.
60x60 debuted in New York in 2003 as an electroacoustic "tape" concert
featuring 60 short electronic works. Since then 60x60 has organized dozens
of concerts in the U.S. and around the world, promoting the work of more
than 1000 composers. The November 2008 60x60 Dance performance at World
Financial Center’s Winter Garden was widely attended and met with critical
acclaim. It has also expanded to include yearly collaborations with other
media, including video, photography, films, sculpture, and dance. Among
recent concerts and collaborations are Canadian Mix (October 2008, Toronto's
Nuit Blanche and Halifax), Midwest Mix (October 2008, Electronic Music
Midwest), 60x60 Video (September 2008, French TV), and 60x60 Dance
(September 2008, Galapagos). Every year, a CD is released to archive and
preserve the music. The current discography includes 60x60 (2003) on
Capstone, and two double-albums (2004-2005 and 2006-2007) on Vox Novus.

60x60 Dance is presented by Galapagos Artspace, who believes “the most basic
function of the arts is to be relevant in the advancement of society.”
