Together Apart

A new choreography by the Boston Dance Theater conceived for video

Together Apart keyvisual ©BDT Commissioned by the Goethe-Institut Boston, ​Boston Dance Theater creates a new choreography which translates themes of division, polarization, reunification and coming together into the language of contemporary dance. The work plays hommage to three decades of German reunification and at the same time reflects the current state of American society. The pandemic lends the theme additional timeliness.
