We’re busy getting ready for our 2019 spring season. This year will feature works about love and justice, including a work by guest choreographer Robert Cleary of Kanopy Dance, and a reconstruction of another long-lost Sokolow work.
Revival: Three Poems
Artistic Director Samantha Geracht is reconstructing Three Poems, choreographed by Anna Sokolow in 1975 on her Juilliard students. The work features an ultra-high-energy large group, a sensuous, mysterious women’s quartet, and a sexy, entangled duet.
Three Poems in rehearsal
Guest choreographer Robert Cleary
Robert Cleary is co-artistic director with Lisa Thurrell of Kanopy Dance in Madison, Wisconsin. We will perform his provocative work, This is Not America. It is a statement about the inequalities in life here in our country, as relevant now as it was when Cleary choreographed it in 2000.
We are also bringing back Steps of Silence, Anna’s powerful 1968 work on the human costs of oppression and invisibility, a work that speaks to the present even more than ever.
Also on the program will be two duets by Jim May depicting love at different stages of life: Sleeping Bouquet, tempestuous young love, and September Sonnet, mature love that looks back as much as it does look forward. And veteran company member Melissa Sobel will reprise her performance of Sokolow’s passionate solo, Two Preludes.
