We are busy preparing for our Spring 2018 season. This year we will perform in Brooklyn at the Mark O’Donnell Theater at the Actors Fund Arts Center, and we will be presenting some work by Anna Sokolow that has not been seen for several decades.
The program will include (choreographed by Anna Sokolow unless otherwise noted):
Dreams (1961) — Driven by Anna’s nightmares of the Holocaust, this masterpiece penetrates the most terrifying realms of human experience, demanding that we see the humanity of persecution’s victims.
Moods (1975) — A new revival of a long-lost work, choreographed in 1975 to Gyorgyi Ligeti’s 10 Pieces for Wind Quintet. Moods is a journey through inner states from serene to violent, from exuberant to crushed, from struggle to acceptance.
Preludes (1984) — Based in social dance of the 30s, to music by George Gershwin, this work recalls the simple elegance and restrained sensuality of that time.
Poem — Guest artist Jennifer Conley will perform this deeply felt, lyric solo, which has not been seen since the late 1990’s.
Sweet in the Morning — Choreographed by Leni Wylliams (1961-1996). Guest artist Clarence Brooks will perform this tribute to Wylliams’ mentors Eleo Pomare and Talley Beatty, set to the vocal musings of Bobby McFerrin. A sojourn connecting the living who mourn, to the deceased who respond, “Do not grieve for me for I am at peace.”
