Shadow Lands will make it’s New York Premiere Thursday, October 3 and Friday, October 4 during the Fall for Dance Festival at New York City Center. The ballet was commissioned last season from choreographer Dana Genshaft as part of The Washington Ballet’s commitment to foster new works that support the evolution of the artist and the art form. With an original score by Mason Bates, composer in residence at The Kennedy Center, and costumes by Reid and Harriet Designs, Shadow Lands emphasizes ballet technique and features choreography that plays with angles, momentum, and abstract movement to show that when broken pieces come together the whole is better and stronger than when it is apart.

The Fall for Dance Festival is an annual two-week sampling of preeminent dance companies and choreographers from around the world. Now in its 16th season, Fall for Dance is widely recognized for presenting artistic excellence of the highest caliber and bringing geographic and stylistic diversity to New York audiences, all for the price of a movie ticket.

Spring 2019: New York

 

The Merce Cunningham Centennial

The Joyce Theatre, April 17-21

The Joyce celebrates the centenary of Merce Cunningham, “one of the great iconoclasts in 20th-century art” (The New York Times), who would have turned 100 this year. Three superb companies perform masterworks from the artist’s vast repertory, each danced to live music. COMPAGNIE CNDC-ANGERS/ROBERT SWINSTON presents Suite for Five, with its quiet unmoving center; Ballet West dances the classic Summerspace, which evokes enormous landscapes filled with motion; and The Washington Ballet returns with Duets, a sophisticated and abstract work for six couples.
