Event Description

New York Theatre Ballet celebrates 35 years with VISIONARIES at Florence Gould Hall, 55 East 59th Street, NYC.  VISIONARIES, the first of two programs in the series LEGENDS AND VISIONARIES, performs on Friday, January 24 and Saturday, January 25, 2013 at 7pm.  Tickets are $30 ($20 for students and seniors) and are available for purchase at www.ticketmaster.com or by calling 800-982-2787.

 

VISIONARIES performance program features a 2013 NYTB commission choreographed by Pam Tanowitz, accompanied by live music by Lou Harrison and Henry Cowell, as well as a pas de deux choreographed by Richard Alston in addition to other pieces.

 

New York Theatre Ballet’s repertory pairs the ballets of legendary creators with those of contemporary visionaries, bringing a new understanding and appreciation of dance. This season features new works and beloved favorites from choreographers including Dan Siretta, Gemma Bond, Pam Tanowitz, Richard Alston, Antonia Franceschi, Remy Charlip, and Antony Tudor.

 

VISIONARIES includes:

 

Short Memory by Pam Tanowitz: A 2013 NYTB Commission, with live music by Lou Harrison and Henry Cowell, helps set up Ms. Tanowitz’s brilliant use of stage space. “Short Memory is a dance for six, yet the groupings and comings and goings make it seem more populous. Eccentric gestures like wriggling fingers are woven into unpredictable yet convincing patterns, bristling with witty detail.” (Brian Seibert, The New York Times, 2/24/13)

 

Light Flooding Into Darkened Rooms by Richard Alston is inspired by Vermeer’s paintings. The ballet, a pas de deux of rare intimacy, conveys a delicacy of feeling masking the formal facade of propriety and gracious behavior. Jo Kondo’s Ars Breview, music inspired by Gaultier’s “broken style,” adds a 20th century tension to this formality with music inspired by Denis Gaulter’s 17th century lute pieces, adds a more overt picture of the undercurrents swirling beneath a demeanor of dignity.
