Be the first to see three new dance works, commissioned by Celebrate Brooklyn, which have been choreographed and will be performed by David Neumann and NicholasLe­ichterDance on Aug. 2.

According to Celebrate Brooklyn co-producer Rachel Charnoff, "Each of them had admired each other’s work - they both teach at NYU - so they agreed to do a duet.

"They are very physical dancers, two great, handsome, but very different, dancers working on [a] duet," said Charnoff. "David Neumann had done a piece with Laurie Anderson; he’s very collaborative and up and coming. He crosses that boundary between acting and performance." Neumann (pictured) will perform "Appropriate Behaviors" (1997) and "Deep Six" (2002).

"Nick is a very sexy choreographer who works a lot with very contemporary, stylish music," she said. Leichter will perform "Bliss" (2002) and the world premiere of "Never End Part 2."

As choreographers-in-residence, Neumann and Leichter will also host a lecture-demonstration at the Prospect Park Picnic House (enter the park at Fifth Street and Prospect Park West) on July 31 at 7:30 pm to share the techniques used in creating their new works.

The Aug. 2 performance will be at 7:30 pm at the Prospect Park Band Shell (Prospect Park West and Ninth Street). Admission is $3. For more information, call (718) 855-7882 ext. 45, or visit the Web site at www.celebratebrooklyn.org.
