Intermezzo Dance Set Edward Henkel's MOVEMENTTALKS, 1/31
INTERMEZZO Dance Company, founded by American Ballet Theatre soloist Craig Salstein, will be featured in Edward Henkel's MovementTalks on Friday, January 31, 2014 at 8pm. In its second appearance, INTERMEZZO will perform and take part in a panel discussion at the 92nd Street Y Harkness Dance Center, 1395 Lexington Avenue (between 91st and 92nd Streets), NYC. Tickets start at $15 and can be purchased at www.92y.org/tickets/production.aspx?pid=96462 or 212.415.5500.
Craig Salstein and choreographers Claudia Schreier and Gemma Bond, together with dancers Kaitlyn Gilliland, Amber Neff, Nadezhda Vostrikov, and Stephen Hanna, explore the role of beauty and how future choreography will be impacted by it. Music for the program will include Beethoven, Schubert, and Dutch composer Douwe Eisenga. How has a dance form created in seventeenth century France emerged as arguably the most adaptable and enduring style of theatrical dance? Despite its rarified origins, ballet has evolved to become relevant and popular all around the world and many contemporary choreographers try their hands at ballet. Is ballet simply about beauty? Is that its strength? What's the difference between prettiness and beauty? How will ballet keep changing in the future?
