Doug Varone and Dancers Presents the World Premiere of everything is fine
New York City's famed Doug Varone and Dancers presents the World Premiere of everything is fine from December 12-16, 2018 at The New Ohio Theatre, 154 Christopher Street, NYC. Performances: Wed at 7:45pm (Reunion Benefit), Thu-Sat at 7pm & 9:30pm, Sat & Sun at 2pm. Tickets are $49 and are available at https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/1001509.
Inspired by the complex, haunting imagery of Billy Collins's poetry, everything is fine unfolds in seven interwoven narratives mapping an array of themes: love, solitude, separation, forgiveness, aging. Performed by a multi-generational cast of 16 artists, it delves deep into memories, creating intimate portraits of ordinary lives.
"This new theater piece explores a darker and more disturbing range of emotions than has generally characterized my work," said Doug Varone. "It is about the relationships we've all survived and their impact on our lives."
Envisioned as a series of cinematic episodes, everything is fine is performed to a newly commissioned score by renowned composer David Van Tieghem for eight company dancers and eight guest alumni dancers.
COMPANY DANCERS: Hollis Barlett, Courtney Barth, Bradley Beakes, Jake Bone, Whitney Dufrene, Hsiao-Jou Tang, Aya Wilson, and Ryan Yamauchi.
GUEST ALUMNI DANCERS: Daniel Charon, Ryan Corriston, Natalie Desch, Adriane Fang, Larry Hahn, Eddie Taketa, Nina Watt, and Rui Forsberg.
Includes sexually sensitive material, which may not be appropriate for young children.
