BWW Review: MARTHA GRAHAM DANCE COMPANY Demonstrates Timeless Innovation Across Eras  Photo BWW Review: MARTHA GRAHAM DANCE COMPANY Demonstrates Timeless Innovation Across Eras at The JOYCE in April
by Cindy Sibilsky - Apr 26, 2019

What has not been said or proclaimed about the majesty and mastery of Martha Graham, her company and her legacy? She revolutionized the way that dance was created and experienced by re-shaping how movement was expressed and performed in the 20th century that has, in turn, inspired and laid the foundation for the dancers and choreographers of today. A sculptor of bodies and painter of gestures, Graham contrasted sharp angles with fluid movements and molded her dancers into statuesque and broken shapes, more akin to Pablo Picasso's repositioning of beauty standards and body parts than her dance peers' styles. Never before or after Graham have knees been so enchanting. To encounter the work of Martha Graham is to understand the capacity of the human form in motion and appreciate the splendor of every sinew.

US Premiere Of Raphaelle Boitel's WHEN ANGELS FALL Announced At Peak Performances Photo US Premiere Of Raphaelle Boitel's WHEN ANGELS FALL Announced At Peak Performances
by BWW News Desk - Feb 6, 2019

Peak Performances' season of genre-and-convention-defying performances catapults into 2019 with multidisciplinary visionary Rapha lle Boitel's return to the Alexander Kasser Theater, following her luminous directorial debut The Forgotten. The U.S. premiere performance, When Angels Fall (February 9-17), is a tragicomic vision of a mechanized world stripped of nature, an environmentally depleted future that holds a mirror to the precariousness of our present. Pushing the boundaries of her circus training as a contortionist and aerialist, Boitel and her company of collaborators Cie L'Oubli (e) layer jaw-dropping acrobatics, an interactive set, chiaroscuro-style lighting, and original music into a breathtaking cinematographic universe. When Angels Fall exemplifies Peak Performances' commitment to highlighting the works of performance auteurs from around the globe giving a home to singular visions by artists like Boitel, Nora Chipaumire, Romeo Castellucci, Emma Dante, Faye Driscoll, Astrid Haddad, Ang lica Liddell, Robert Wilson, and many others.
