Post subject:  Samantha Geracht named Artistic Director of Sokolow Company

Jim May announces the appointment of Samantha Geracht, a Company dancer since 1992, as Artistic Director of the Sokolow Theatre Dance Ensemble. May, artistic director and inheriter of the Sokolow repertory upon the choreographer's passing in 2000, will retain the title of director and continue to work with the company, but significant autonomy has been passed to Geracht and dedicated veteran company members Eleanor Bunker, Lauren Naslund, Francesca Todesco, and Luis Gabriel Zaragoza, who are authorized to direct and reconstruct works from Sokolow's vast repertory. Remarked Geracht: 'We will strive, as Anna did in her 70-year career, to present metaphors that are honest images of the human condition. Anna Sokolow's work is timeless, always relevant, and will always speak to the challenge for human beings to live as free people struggling to comprehend and understand the great issues of existence, large and small, that were the wellspring of her art." The only New York modern dance company founded by and committed to the works of the legendary Sokolow, the Ensemble's next New York season will take place March 8-11 at the Actor's Fund Arts Center in Brooklyn.
