Magritte, Magritte!

We’ve started rehearsals for Anna Sokolow’s 1980 tribute to surrealist painter RenĂ© Magritte. In Magritte, Magritte, Anna brings his paintings into action with a blend of dance, theater, music, visual imagery and poetry. The work takes a journey of dream-like illogic: sensuous, bizarre, mysterious, comic.


“It was a great relief and joy to see something (Magritte, Magritte) on a stage that is visually exciting and intellectually stimulating. I am grateful that Ms. Sokolow continues to experiment with theatre danced and danced theatre.”

Walter Sorell, Dance News, 1972

We haven’t performed Magritte, Magritte in its entirety since 2006, so we are very much looking forward to presenting it again in June (with Rooms) as part of Real+Surreal.
