May 26 - June 3, Nichele will be in New York studying with Doug Varone in a retreat intensive at Hunter College. The intensive is the first part of a mentorship program called DEVICES, through which Varone will offer mentorship to Nichele during the development of a new work between June and August. In August, Nichele and dancers will share the work in Salt Lake City before traveling to NYC to perform at Gibney Dance Center, alongside other works supported by the DEVICES program.
