Performing Artists Choreographer Oluwadamilare (Dare) Ayorinde shares his creative process. While in residence, Dare is beginning a new process, “exploring themes of intimacy. That word feels poignant with the new norm of quarantine. There’s a new intimate knowledge of myself and my immediate spaces that I have a dichotomous relationship with. I don’t think of this as a response to the Covid Pandemic but cannot exclude our present realities from our process. We will dig with improvisation and contact being our entry point.”
Oluwadamilare (Dare) Ayorinde is Nigerian – Black freelance performing artist living in New Jersey. Since Rutgers University he has worked with Colleen Thomas, Bill Young, Netta Yerushalmy, Stefanie Batten Bland, Susan Marshall, Kayla Farrish, Douglas Dunn, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker (broadway lab), The Trisha Brown Dance Company, Kyle Marshall and Miriam Gabriel + Carlo Antonio Villanueva. He has presented work at Smush Gallery, Morristown Museum, Judson Church, Participant Inc Gallery and more. In 2019 he was Dance on the Lawn’s fifth Emerging Choreographer and a Chez Bushwick resident. Last year he was a New Jersey State Council On The Arts Fellow, named top 25 to watch in Dance Magazine and nominated for “Outstanding Performer” by the Bessie Committee. This is his second time being at Bethany Arts Center and first time where he is focusing on his work.
