The Last Bite Sizzle Reel

ThruLines Artistic Director, Cassie Nordgren, was the recipient of the 2017 Danza Debuts Commission from the United Palace of Cultural Arts. The residency culminated in the world premiere of "The Last Bite," a 30-minute original narrative told entirely through dance. ThruLines debuted "The Last Bite" on June 16th, 2017 at the United Palace of Cultural Arts, a 3,400 seat theater in Washington Heights.

ThruLines is currently seeking studio or theater residencies to revisit The Last Bite. If you believe this project would be a good match for your space, please reach out.
