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.

“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
