Choreography: Anna Sokolow
Music: George Gershwin
8 dancers, 12 minutes

An embodiment of the elegant joy and restrained sensuality of Gershwin’s piano music.

“The causal groupings, often clustered around the on-stage piano, had a glorious sense of fun as the men seemed occasionally to channel Fred Astaire, flicking their hands in perfect time.”
