Kurt Weill (1988)

Music: Kurt Weill
6-10 dancers, 30 minutes

Using the music of Kurt Weill (ranging from classic tango to string quartet to narrative song), this six-part dance combines the powerful impact of the understated Sokolow gesture with her ability to translate musical pulse and cadences into rhythmic expression.

“ ‘Kurt Weill’ fits the composer’s roots in German Expressionism with Miss Sokolow’s singular brand of American Expressionism. …Miss Sokolow can sum up a state of being — an entire society — in an arrested pose.”

Anna Kisselgoff, The New York Times, 1991
