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 E. Cleary of Kanopy Dance, and a reconstruction of another long-lost Sokolow work.
Three Poems in rehearsal
Revival: Three Poems
Based on a tip from a former student of Anna’s at Juilliard, Artistic Director Samantha Geracht is reconstructing another long-dormant work of Anna Sokolow’s, not seen since the mid-1970s. Three Poems features a mysterious, mythic women’s quartet, an ultra-high-energy large group, and a smouldering duet. New costumes will be designed by New York City stylist and fashion designer Epperson.
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. Read an interview with Robert Cleary at Flying Close to the Sun.
Also on the program:
Steps of Silence — Ms. Sokolow’s shattering vision of people denied their humanity, trapped and invisible.
The Desperate Heart — Associate Artistic Director Eleanor Bunker will perform Valerie Bettis’ compelling 1943 solo, to the poetry of John Malcolm Binning.
Sleeping Bouquet — An intimate portrait of a stormy relationship, choreographed by Jim May and performed by Samantha Geracht and Daniel Fetecua Soto.
