Michael Nickerson-Rossi

Artistic Director

Out of the 100s that applied for "Merde, the Dancer Makers Moment," the NRD panel selected up 7 professional companies / choreographers to present a dance work.

The audience will select their preferred work of the evening. The work chosen of higher interest will be commissioned by Palm Springs IDF to premiere the work in 2021.
