Im/perfection - Dance worlds collide in the story of DEMO by Damian Woetzel


The Kennedy Center presents an inside look at the making of DEMO by Damian Woetzel in this Digital Stage Original mini-documentary. Explore the concept of artistic im/perfection with a cast of world class ballerinas, hip-hop dancers, modern dancers, and musicians led by Woetzel, the newly appointed President of Juilliard. Damian Woetzel, a former principal dancer with New York City Ballet, modern choreographer Pam Tanowitz, and others bring a sold-out performance from the rehearsal room to the stage in just two days. The supremely talented cast of characters includes Lil Buck (Memphis jooker), Patricia Delgado (former Miami City Ballet principal dancer), and Caroline Shaw (Pulitzer Prize winner), with music by Philip Glass and Brooklyn Rider.
