Noted choreographer Gregory Dawson brings his Dawson Dance SF company to a rare New York City appearance on Thursday, September 4th through Saturday, September 6th at 8:00 p.m. in the Rose Nagelberg Theatre (entrance on 25th Street). Tickets are $25, students and seniors $15.

In collaboration with soprano Christy Rohayem, and Alton San Giovanni, “Fabbrica Materasso D’argento,” created in residence, investigates the marriage of music, voice, and dance; the physical possibilities created by this matrimony; and the influence each of the components has on the union. The movement compositions are abstract and independent of each other, but hold within them narratives that could intermingle.

Judgment Call
Education

Imagine if your career involved making 6,000 split-second decisions every night, with millions of people judging your performance. Imagine if those decisions were further recorded, compiled, and analyzed to detect areas for improvement. Sound like a fun job? That’s how it goes for NBA referees.

On Sunday September 7th at 6:30pm, join Steven Angel, the National Basketball Association’s SVP of Referee Operations and Analytics, as he explains how the league uses analytics to monitor and improve referee performance, describes the factors that influence fan perception of referee performance, and shares some common beliefs about referees that can be proven false (and sometimes true!) with data.
