DrumatiX is a bi-coastal, creative percussion company founded in 2017 by Noa Barankin.  “Rhythm Delivered”, created by Barankin, is an electrifying, well-crafted, and virtuosic creative percussion performance that blends tap dance, body percussion, and drumming with found items, invented instruments, large barrels, drums, buckets, technology, clowning, and audience interaction. The show follows the antics of a group of friends who discover secret items in boxes and turn them into playable instruments until the last box reveals a surprise. With no shortage of plot twists and humor, the show at Brand will feature historical dance references, world rhythms stemming from Barankin's Middle-Eastern roots and global upbringing, interactive parts that get the audience moving and grooving with the dancers, and the use of technology to create a truly immersive experience.

Re:borN Dance Interactive was founded in 2016 by Boróka Nagy as a contemporary dance company that challenges the conventional audience-dancer relationship and explores the interconnectedness of movement, emotions, and identity.? The mission of Re:bornN Arts is to create movement experiences that transcend cultural, social, gender, socioeconomic, generational, and language barriers. Through their services and programs, the company aims to facilitate the feeling of self-agency, a space for community and shared experiences, and a sense of belonging. Re:borN strives to provide life-giving movement experiences that break cycles of isolation, complacency, uniformity, and apathy, and encourage community, creativity, diversity, and expression. In their re-imagining of “HOME” at Brand, Re:borN will present an immersive show that invites the audience to participate.

Bodies in Play is a LA-based performance collective founded by Andrew Pearson in 2017 as a platform to interrogate existing models for producing dance and performance. The group creates melodramatic Plays?in which their?Bodies?further the narrative through dance and movement. Catered to the socially conscious and playfully minded, their work is best viewed through a lens just queer of center, disarming audiences with pop theatricality and inviting a challenge to conformity. The company works with an ever-expanding and rotating roster of artists including dancers, actors, musicians, and designers. At Brand, the collective will be presenting work developed collectively by Lisa Bierman, Darby Epperson, Cristina Florez, Celine Kiner, Andrew Pearson, Tiffany Sweat, Daurin Tavares, Rachel Whiting, and Sadie Yarrington.


Malathi Iyengar established Rangoli Dance Company in 1992 to share the performing and visual arts of India. The company features the vibrant South Indian dance form ‘Bharatanatyam’ through strong technique and storytelling. Bharatanatyam is a classical Indian dance form that originated in the temples of South India. Drawing from the myth and spirituality of South Indian heritage, Iyengar creates dance landscapes that dwell in both traditional and secular, and rhythm and stillness. The dances convey a sense of reverence and mystery, they and are offered in the spirit of universal celebration. At Brand, the company will perform Vahanas: God’s Own Vehicles. Inspired by the Vahanas or the animal vehicles in the Hindu Pantheon, Iyengar creates dances that portray these mythological figures through symbols and storytelling.

The performances are free and open to the public. Seating is limited. An accessible entrance and parking is located on the East side of the building. For more information, contact 818-548-2051 or https://www.brandlibrary.org/dance-series
