Pentacle: Within and Between Us

Wednesday, March 27, 2019
6:00 PM–8:00 PM

Experience site-specific dance in the Rubin galleries by some of New York’s most inspiring choreographers, presented in partnership with the arts organization Pentacle. The performances will reflect the theme of power, which radiates from our galleries as part of a yearlong exploration of the topic.

On Wednesday, March 27, witness a performance from choreographer Zvi Gotheiner of ZviDance at either 6:00 PM, 6:45 PM, or 7:30 PM.

Pentacle’s Dance Series at the Rubin Museum of Art is supported by private funds from Mertz Gilmore Foundation and the Howard Gilman Foundation, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

About the Choreographer

Zvi Gotheiner was born and raised in kibbutz Mesilot in northern Israel. He began his artistic career as a violinist with the Young Kibbutzim Orchestra, where he attained the rank of soloist and concertmaster. He began dancing at age 17 and soon after formed his first performance group. He joined the Bat-Sheva Dance Company after serving in the army. Zvi arrived in New York in 1978 on a dance scholarship from the America-Israel Cultural Foundation and danced with the Joyce Trisler Dance Company and Feld Ballets/NY. After directing Tamar Ramle and the Jerusalem Tamar Dance Companies in Israel and the Israeli Chamber Dance Company in New York, he founded ZviDance in 1989. He has created more than 25 works for his company, among them Dabke, which was named by The New York Times as one of the ten best dance works of 2013. Zvi is a highly regarded ballet teacher, described by The New York Times as the Zen Dance Master of New York.” Most recently, Zvi received distinguished teaching awards from the American Dance Festival and the Kaatsbaan International Dance Center’s Playing Field.
