Choreographed by Doris Humphrey in 1928, Water Study conjures up a variety of sea moods ranging from calm to tidal and wind- driven turbulence. Performed in silence, the dance calls for ensemble work of the most subtle and complex order: completely synchronized rhythmic timing between the dancers.
Ray Cook will stage Water Study from the original Labanotation score. Ray is a prominent notator of Humphrey and Limón works. Re-staging from Labanotation examines not only the steps but also any imagery, motivation, and characterization given to the dancers by the choreographer.
