New York, NY — National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Chairman Jane Chu announced today that RIOULT Dance NY is one of 919 nonprofit organizations nationwide to receive an NEA Art Works grant. RIOULT Dance is recommended for a $10,000 grant to support the creation and presentation of Artistic Director, Pascal Rioult’s new work entitled Polymorphous.
Polymorphous, will enjoy its world premiere at DeBartolo Performing Arts Center in Notre Dame, IN on February 6-7, 2015. Set to selections from J.S. Bach’s “The Well Tempered Clavier,” Polymorphous explores the subjectivity of perception through movement and technology. The work takes on the very idea of polymorphism --referring to the act of something that assumes or occurs in various forms.
Working with video artist Brian Beasley and set designer Harry Feiner, Pascal Rioult will integrate media through a number of available technologies such as computer processing, simulation, animation, video, and image processing. Four dancers - two male and two female - will serve as both the performers and objects of illusion in the dance.
