August 18, 19, 20 Paul Taylor Dance Company
August 25 Stephen Petronio Company & Complexions Contemporary Ballet

Flow to the Groove: A Salute to Disco Dancin’ (Saturday, August 20)

This salute to the disco era features the Arthur Aviles Typical Theatre in re-creations of disco events, in roller-disco, and new dances created to disco music, while voiceovers by veterans of the Bronx disco scene recall the joyous, non-stop dancing that defined an era.

(August 25) – Stephen Petronio’s cutting edge choreography is internationally recognized. Characterized by its drama and emotion, Petronio’s often deeply-personal choreography has addressed topics as wide-ranging as post-modern alienation and the collapse of the Twin Towers. 2005 marks the company’s 20th anniversary. Complexions, founded by Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson over a decade ago, is built on a concept of diversity in dance. Mr. Rhoden’s choreography, rooted in classical dance, is deeply human; inspired by social issues, it ponders the human condition and the range of human emotion. Featuring, Mr. Richardson – recently hailed as one of the outstanding male dancers in America – this stellar, predominantly African-American company draws on individual personalities to create an electrifying unity.

Founded in l946 by Mr. Limón and Doris Humphrey, the company has been in continuous existence since, touring, teaching, and commissioning extraordinary new works from such masters as Donald McKayle and Lar Lubovitch. The company has made five previous appearances at Out of Doors, dating back to 1980.

by EVA YAA ASANTEWAA for the New York Times

FLY Dance Company - an all-male black and Hispanic quintet from Houston, appearing at the Lincoln Center Out of Doors festival - sets old-school moves to everything from Debussy's "Claire de Lune" to James Brown's "I Feel Good" and exotica by the Peruvian singer Yma Sumac. This spirited ensemble has been noted for its confident stage presence, brio and comedic ease.
