 For the health and safety of our community, all public performances through March 28 have been cancelled. This includes all remaining Platform 2020 events, as well as Megan Williams Dance Projects (Community ACCESS).

can I have it without begging
 is a live music and dance event created and performed in collaboration with acclaimed composer Eve Beglarian, the dancers of Megan Williams Dance Projects, five new music luminaries, and the Young People’s Chorus of NYC. The evening will be comprised of four connected repertory dance works that live in and around existing compositions from Beglarian’s expansive catalogue, as well as inside of two newly commissioned world premiere works. 

Works include:

My Great Desire, a large ensemble “ballet” to five sections of Eve Beglarian’s MACHAUT IN THE MACHINE AGE series, that interrogates and agitates the classical lexicon while forging a narrative around attention and longing.

Play Like A Girl, a raucous and contemplative suite of short dances to Beglarian’s keyboard variations of the same name based on the Bulgarian tune “Kaval Sviri”(sung by the Young People’s Chorus of NYC in these performances) 

Five Things is a reboot of a duet that originally premiered in the DANCE NOW Festival in 2018, and is now reimagined for Megan and Esmé Boyce

Swift Bird
, a newly commissioned world premiere companion piece to Five Things, is a rigorous solo for Megan Williams that explores and exposes the vulnerability and solitude of aging.
