Scenes from the Music of Charles Ives (1971)

Music: Charles Ives
6-12 dancers, 20 minutes

A poetic mix of masked revelry and human yearning set to the music of Charles Ives, a composer whose dark and stringent sensibility was comparable to Ms. Sokolow’s view of life. This work contains “The Unanswered Question.”

“One remembers, watching the performance, Ms. Sokolow’s belief that audiences and performers must ‘feel’ dancing that is ‘impelled by truth.’ “

Jennifer Dunning, New York Times, 1985
