Enter Clancy world. It's an endless pas de deux, trios, quatre, cinq and six conjured up in mists and shadows by wizard of invention Adrienne Clancy. Dancers project an enchanting quality of selflessness …a tour de force of unpredictable partnering. — Washington Post

…the moments of simplicity were able to shine brightly, and allowed one to contemplate the effects of support on one’s dreams, consciousness of one’s path versus blind ignorance to that path, and the beauty of untraditional movements/things in the moment and their effect on the dream at hand. — Rick Westerkamp, DC Metro Theatre Arts

ClancyWorks makes a guest artist appearance as we begin a series of collaborative projects with Equinox Dance Company. This first collaborative project is “By Accident”, an exploration of the causes and effects of chance encounters. ClancyWorks will present Adriane Fang’s recent residency techniques and “Catching Dreams”, choreographed by Adrienne Clancy, will also be on the program and asks how might we continue to hold onto simple ideas and aspirations in a world that moves so quickly and is becoming so complex? How can we ensure that our dreams do not transform into our nightmares?



Millennial Motions

06:00PM Sunday, April 23, 2017

Baltimore Theater Project 45 West Preston Street, Baltimore, Maryland 21201

This collaborative performance draws on millennial perceptions from dancers and choreographers hailing from Coppin State University Repertory Dance Ensemble, ClancyWorks Dance Company, and Patapsco High School and Center for the Arts, in order to advance positive social action in the Baltimore community. Patapsco students will get a chance to present their fantastic dancing while at the same time gleaning the experience from professionals and networking with university colleagues. Inspired by the quote of Ossie Davis, "Any form of art is a form of power; it has impact, it can affect change — it can not only move us, it makes us move", Millennial Motions will explore the ability to respond to change as it impacts them. This performance highlights dance as a catalyst to bring different generations of dancers together in a spirit of celebrating dreams and possibilities. It is sure to be a festival of dance and community making!
