This Red Door presents a shared evening of new work by choreographers Caitlin Cook and Nora Stephens as part of the inaugural series, Dance Happens at This Red Door, at the Kunsthalle Gallery in the Galapagos Art Space in DUMBO, Brooklyn.
Caitlin Cook’s new group work Health Dance/Dance for the East Star, is a ritualistic square dance to be performed in springtime. Health Dance/Dance for the East Star is performed by Caitlin Cook, Jessie Gold, Jennifer Kjos, Parker Lutz and Paige Martin, with set design by Krishana Collins.
When I am Young is a new experimental solo performance by Nora Stephens. Performed by Stephens, When I am Young uses pop music, character play, and insular movement to rupture the awkward and resonating psychological epochs of adolescence.

Her choreography has been presented at venues in New York including The Kitchen, Joyce Soho, Dixon Place, Good/Bad Art Collective and Merce Cunningham Studio.
