Grief work
Prometheus’s ‘Devil’s Wedding’

All three dances on Prometheus Dance’s Memorial Day–weekend program at Boston Conservatory Theater seemed to tell of women’s travails and their temporary deliverance. .... All 10 dancers were women. From dance to dance, they shared a movement vocabulary that suggested pain, struggle, solace, and submission to unseen but unbreakable constraints.

Dance troupe high-kicks holes in old stereotypes about age
From September to May, the 10-member Elders Ensemble spends every Thursday afternoon rehearsing dances choreographed by Diane Arvanites-Noya and Tommy Neblett, the artistic directors of Prometheus Dance.
....
The Elders Ensemble is Prometheus’s second company, and has been performing professionally - the dancers are paid - for four years. “We wanted to blow the myth of dance being only for youth out of the water,” Neblett says.

From Karen Campbell in the Boston Globe: Prometheus celebrates a distinctive vision
Quote:
One of the most engaging elements of Prometheus Dance’s 20th Anniversary concert over the weekend at Boston Conservatory was the inclusion of two videos featuring excerpts of dances that trace the company’s history. While it’s notable for any dance company to hit the two-decade mark in these rough climes, the clips make it perfectly clear that Prometheus Dance has toughed it out all these years not just by grit and determination, but by commitment to a distinctive artistic vision.

What’s left behind - Tap Olé at the Regent, Rachid Ouramdane at the ICA, Prometheus at Boston Conservatory

....
There were much happier home movies woven into the 20th-anniversary performances of Prometheus Dance at the Boston Conservatory Theatre. Video excerpts from two decades of repertory — all created by Diane Arvanites-Noya or Tommy Neblett, or both in collaboration — reminded me that in the course of their careers the two have taken on a range of themes and explored a range of musical genres.

From Megan Tench in the Boston Globe:
Quote:
Moved by what they do
[Diane Arvanites-Noya and Tommy Neblett] founded Prometheus Dance Company in 1987 and kept it going "for the love of dance," Neblett says, "certainly not the money." Along with nine dancers, they are bringing work including the world premiere of "WARP," a multimedia performance, to the Institute of Contemporary Art tonight and tomorrow.
