RIOULT Dance NY, a leading American modern dance company with a classic sensibility, will perform on Thursday, November 13, 2014 at 8:00pm at the Manship Theatre at the Shaw Center for the Arts, 100 Lafayette Street, Baton Rouge, LA 70801. Tickets range from $23.50 to $38.50 and are available at https://www.choicesecure03.net/mainapp/eventschedule.aspx?Clientid=ManshipTheatre&prod=PASRIO.
Partially funded through the South Arts Dance Touring Initiative, this multi-day residency will include a public master class at the Manship Theatre, a residency at The Dunham School, as well as a special lunch and learn presentation with Associate Artistic Director Joyce Herring, for health care workers, on movement and healing, at BR General Hospital as part of BRG’s Arts in Medicine program in partnership with Manship on the Move. On November 11, 2014 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m., RIOULT Dance NY will offer a master class on stage at the Manship Theatre. This event is free with purchase of ticket to November 13th performance, otherwise, master class tickets are $15.00. Observation tickets may be purchased for $10.00. Prior to the public performance on November 13th there will be a 7:00 p.m. pre-performance talk by the Artistic Director/Choreographer, Pascal Rioult, in The Gallery at the Manship Theatre. Free for ticket holders.
The evening’s performance will feature four dances from Rioult’s vast and varied repertory including Views of the Fleeting World, Wien, On Distant Shores, and Bolero. Views of the Fleeting World, inspired by the ancient woodblock prints of Japanese master Hiroshige and the ingenious structure of J. S. Bach’s “The Art of Fugue,” explores the ephemeral quality of living things and the eternal cycle of life. Wien, a darkly fascinating take on Ravel and the Viennese Waltz, is the very image of social refinement which becomes the symbol of social disarray and decay. In On Distant Shores… a redemption fantasy Pascal Rioult sets out to redeem Helen of Troy whom he contends was brought to Troy against her will. And the program closes with Rioult’s Bolero, a bold and distinctive interpretation of Ravel’s famous score ― a riveting tour de force.
