Active in one form or another for close to 50 years, Fresh Tracks, a juried program of dances by emerging choreographers, has hosted such art stars as Bill T. Jones (who now runs the place, thankyouverymuch), Deborah Jowitt (longtime Voice dance critic), and Elizabeth Streb (one of several MacArthur winners on the roster). It attracts dance makers from across the world and across genres and has helped launch many an enduring career. This year’s presentations, ranging from physical theater to krump and house, include works by Martita Abril of Tijuana, Mexico; Maximilian Balduzzi of the Italian Dolomites; Philadelphia movers Ben Grinberg and Nick Gillette; Daniel Holt, from California by way of Ohio State and now a resident of Brooklyn; Leslie Parker, another Brooklynite; and Gabrielle Revlock, another Philadelphian.
