David Dorfman to Bring Community Dance to Galesburg

Renowned dance choreographer David Dorfman will accept as many as 30 students and community members to participate — along with his company — in a week-long series of workshops and a capstone performance at Knox College.


The Midwest premiere of “underground,” a new work from renowned choreographer David Dorfman will cap a week-long series of dance workshops April 2-7 at Knox College.

Dorfman, who specializes in community-based dance projects, has invited Knox students and members of the Galesburg community ages 16 and up to participate in free workshop rehearsals, then perform “underground” with members of Dorfman’s company at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 7, in Harbach Theatre in Ford Center for the Fine Arts….

…. “Underground” is based on the activities of the Weather Underground, an American protest organization that originated in the 1960s with opposition to the Vietnam War, and later, according to authorities, engaged in rioting and bombing.
