With plans to continue to advocate on behalf of Brooklyn artists and beyond, art nonprofit Norte Maar’s relocation from a 2-bedroom space in Bushwick to Cypress Hills gives some locals pause.
This year young choreographers ages 14-19 will present dances alongside the professional choreographers at Norte Maar’s Dance at Socrates Sculpture Park.
On the occasion of Norte Maar’s relocation to Cypress Hills / East New York, Co-Founders Jason Andrew and Julia K. Gleich sat down with Bedford + Bowery reporter Nichole Disser to discuss their move from Bushwick and the opportunities to facilitate more art in Cypress Hills / East New York.
Returning for its third summer season, Norte Maar’s Dance at Socrates announces its 2015 choreographer residencies and free public performance schedule.
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our dear friend Fern Dog.
L Magazine’s lead arts critic Paul D’Agostino talks to Jason Andrew and Julia K. Gleich on Norte Maar’s new home in Cypress Hills / East New York and the bright future for the organization that had previously positioned Bushwick as one of the most important artistic neighborhoods in New York.
Norte Maar, the innovative arts organization that played an integral role in creating the vibrant Bushwick arts scene, is relocating to the Cypress Hills area of East New York.
Another Adirondack Summer! As Norte Maar continues to be a leading force in Brooklyn, many may not realize that the organization was originally founded on the shores of Lake Champlain in the summer of 2004 by curator Jason Andrew and choreographer Julia K. Gleich, playing a major role in revitalizing the arts in the North Country from 2004-2010. Through exhibitions at the farmhouse in Rouses Point and ballet performances in a converted ice rink at the Civic Center, Norte Maar became a signature advocate and presenter of the visual, literary, and performing arts connecting an emerging artistic community within the North Country.
