Monica Hogan Danceworks: Resilient Paradise – May 18, 2019

Saturday, May 18th – 7:30 pm

One night only!


Monica Hogan Danceworks is thrilled to debut our premiere full length NYC production this May 18, 2019 at GK ArtsCenter in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Resilient Paradise examines the resiliency of the human condition. The work celebrates the persistent pursuit of joy and our headstrong ability — in spite of struggle — to challenge melancholy by deliberately manifesting happiness through pleasures big and small.

The evening marks an incredible milestone for the company, featuring the premiere of MHDW’s first large-scale choreographic project, Resilient Paradise.

Directed and choreographed by: Monica Hogan Thysell
