Ms. Sokolow’s shattering vision of people denied their humanity.
Set to piano music by Rachmaninoff, Homage is a portrait of the turbulent inner life of Edgar Allan Poe as told through his poems, including “Alone,” “The Raven,” “The Bells,” “Annabelle Lee,” and “A Dream Within a Dream.”
Inspired by the paintings of the Belgian artist Rene Magritte, Ms. Sokolow created an extraordinary surrealist dance-theater piece that carries Magritte’s images into action.
One of Ms. Sokolow’s most handsome weavings into theater-dance of works of art and literature. A re-creation with brutal conviction of the writer’s sense of chill isolation in an overbearing world.
