O&A Dance: Gierre Godley/Project 44 Performs Gandy Dancer In Metropolis

By Walter Rutledge

Gierre J Godley, choreographer and founder of Project 44, will present his latest project Gandy Dancer, in Metropolis, a choreography showcase, Saturday, March 22 and Sunday, March 23 at 248 West 60th Street; 7:30 pm. The inaugural choreography showcase celebrates the innovative movement of three contemporary dance companies from Miami and New York. The two performances are part of an initiative  by Jessica DiMauro and Ana Miranda to bring together artists with the common goal of sharing artistic expression through movement.


Gandy Dancer is inspired by African-American railroad workers of the early 1900s, who had a long tradition of using songs and rhythms to coordinate movement. With the historical ideas of a Gandy Dancer in place, Godley’s work also explores the male bonding experience in regards to what many feel connect us as people: love, loss, movement, and music. Set to music by African-American Spirituals and Ray Charles, and performed by Nik Owens, Aaron R White and Godley.
