American choreographer Eliot Feld once again takes a leap from tutus to
post-classicism when he presents Mandance Project, featuring three World
Premieres that, according to writer Meryl Cates "will include all the humor,
introspection and imagination that Feld is famous for" (Encore Magazine, March 2009).
Dust is a visually stunning solo for Wu-Kang Chen that takes place in a
storm of flying debris blown about by 36 fans. Another new solo, Radiance, is a
dance about dancing, created for Ha-Chi Yu, who went through the Ballet
School school and into the company. The season's third premiere is The
Spaghetti Ballet for Ha-Chi joined by two dancers and several children from the
Ballet Tech School. Mimi Lien has once again created a superbly clever set for
this dance/theater work, set to the familiar movie music of Ennio Morricone,
composer of many scores for Italian "spaghetti westerns." Completing the
program is one of Feld's solos to music by Steve Reich: Proverb, premiered in
2004 by Sean Suozzi, here danced by Wu-Kang.
HORSE, the all-male Taiwan-based company will again have two evenings for
the New York premiere of Bones, co-created by the five company members to music
by French sound artist Yannick Dauby.
