This Live Dance Performance Is Surely to Astound
Making their first-ever tour to the United States, CCN Ballet de Lorraine is one of the most important companies working in Europe.
Sounddance, one of Merce Cunningham’s most beloved pieces, is a work in opposition to ballet’s uniformity and unison, a fast and vigorous dance winding up into an orgy of movement that then unwinds as the dancing continues…elsewhere. Musician and composer David Tudor’s driving score provides the energetic accompaniment to Cunningham’s fast-paced choreography.
Fabrications, another Cunningham work, features a shifting ensemble of 15 dancers. Choreographed using Cunningham's signature chance procedures, the work offers a dramatic and elegiac tone, accompanied by music from Brazilian composer Emanual Dimas de Melo Pimenta.
The third work of the program is Untitled Partner #3, choreographed by Petter Jacobsson and Thomas Caley. This interdisciplinary work combines dance and film in a performance-installation, searching for but never finding equilibrium between id and ego.
