On the Road, inspired by Jack Kerouac’s novel of the same title, is a multimedia dance piece that contemplates the upheaval of the 1960's and that generation's startling notions of social rebellion. The road trip is a metaphor of an improvised life and having no ties to anything. Author Kerouac was trying to hold onto his youth and fight the passage of time. Virtuosic in form and versatile in style, Kerouac’s On the Road entwines the thrills of freedom, the sounds of jazz, and the perplexity of youthful American voices discovering their closeted and social selves. Gotheiner’s On the Road is a total celebration of individuality. Performed against the backdrop of Joshua Higgason's hypnotic video designs, On the Road is set to Jukka Rintamki's distinctive score.  The video by Higgason was shot during a two-week road trip through the rust belt of America, in the spring of 2016, with four of ZviDance's dancers improvising movement along the way.

On the Road was presented by DANCE NOW for it’s  Dancemopolitan Featured Artist Series and was recorded live on April 27, 2019.

DANCE NOW was created as a pilot program of the Downtown Multi-Arts Festival in 1995. In 1997, they launched independently and for two and a half decades have offered unconventional performance events, presenting in traditional and non-traditional venues. In 2003, Dance Now created Dance-mopolitan for the intimacy of Joe’s Pub. The closeness of artists to their audience at the Pub provides a vital stimulus to spark creativity. This, along with the challenge initiative, encouraging work marked by brevity and clarity, inspired the commissioning of more than 27 full and shared evening works for Joe's Pub. With this success Dance Now merged all programs to Joe's Pub in 2011, where audiences have come to expect risk-taking, surprise, extraordinary dancing, and magical experiences.

Today, Dance Now is a network of interacting performance, creative development, and educational opportunities, serving a diverse roster of multi-generational artists. Partnerships with like-minded arts organizations, including Joe’s Pub, the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks in Bethlehem, PA and The Bang Group in Boston, allows Dance Now to offer multiple performance opportunities through the Dance Now Joe’s Pub, Raw, SteelStacks and Boston programs.
