Jules Feiffer’s beloved modern Dancer, whose cartoon figure ran for 40 years in The Village Voice, was celebrated by Arts World Financial Center in a series of special events during River To River Festival.

The centerpiece was the NY premiere of The Dancer Films, a collection of six very short films directed by Judy Dennis and featuring Andrea Weber of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company as the iconic character. Taking the experience further, Arts World Financial Center presented an exhibition of Feiffer’s original Dancer drawings alongside new works in A Dance To Spring: The Drawings of Jules Feiffer.

PKPR was thrilled to secure an in depth, front page Arts section feature on The Dancer Films, showcasing interviews with Feiffer, Dennis, Weber, and the film’s choreographers Susan Marshall and Larry Keigwin. Other highlights included features in The Village Voice and a segment on WNET’s Sunday Arts.
