HACKETTSTOWN, NJ, May 23, 2024 — Under the artistic direction of Maureen Glennon Clayton, moe-tion dance theater will present a new event, Intermix ~ A Choreography Showcase, as part of the Centenary Stage Company’s season at Centenary University on Saturday, June 15, 2024, 7:00pm.

This new curated showcase will feature emerging and established artists from the tri-state area; dancers, choreographers, and dance companies. Artistic Director, Maureen Glennon Clayton, created this showcase to unite the dance community to celebrate dance, movement, and creativity. Her goal is that this first showcase will be the stepping stone towards more opportunities for dancers and dance lovers alike.

Intermix ~ A Choreography Showcase will feature works by Shelby Bakota, Kaitlyn Esposito/Extensions Dance Project, Nathan Forster/ReFrame Dance Theatre, Lara M. Friedman-Kats, Kelly Guerrero, Juliana Hassouna, Heather Kroe, Mattie McGarey, Sabrina Olivieri, Nicole Smith Levay/In Good Company and Heather Warfel. Choreographer, Andrea Kramer, will present the narrative-dance film, “The War Is Over”, created in collaboration with Dave Lamm/Wild Little Bird Productions.

Maureen Glennon Clayton will premiere two new works; Still Waiting, a trio signifying that women’s rights are human rights, and Walk Move Jump, a sextet made in collaboration with the dancers. This work is purely movement-based, but there is also a subtle relationship component.

The company will also perform 1,000 Vigils, a piece choreographed by guest choreographer, Lisa Peluso. This quartet, inspired by the idea of strong matriarchal women who instinctually protect, is powerful, highlighting the dancers’ physicality.
