Retrograde Universe is the title of a new work and this evening by Catherine Gallant/DANCE and Dances by Isadora, both led by Artistic Director and ChoreographerCatherine Gallant.
New works by Catherine Gallant on this program include Finally with music by Rome prize winning composer, Lisa Bielawa and text from Franz Kafka; the premiere ofRetrograde Universe, a work using indeterminate structures to investigate the nearly lost sensate world of skin and paper; and Meeting #12, which is danced by Michelle Cohen and Alvaro Gonzalez.
Isadora Duncan’s dances of wind, sea, darkness and light will be performed by the members of Dances by Isadora. The Allegretto from Isadora Duncan’s 1908 untitled work to Beethoven’s Symphony No.7 Op.92, which has not been performed since 1979 will be reanimated by enlivening the extant fragments from the Maria Theresa lineage and expanding and re-imagining the choreography of the Allegretto and Presto sections as group works. The program also includes Valse Brillante and Duncan’s last works to Scriabin etudes played live by concert pianist, Yegor Shetsov.
