December 6 – 8View All Events
Witness the next generation of professional dance artists during the Purchase Dance Company’s fall 2019 season in our intimate Dance Theatre Lab! With a wide-range of cutting-edge premieres and exquisitely re-staged masterworks, our season showcases the dynamism and virtuosity of our dancers and highlights their exceptional training.
We honor 20th century icon Trisha Brown with Set and Reset/Reset (1983), her renowned postmodern masterpiece that sends dancers across the stage in rippling waves bursting with fluid, idiosyncratic movement.
Esteemed faculty member and former New York City Ballet soloist, Bettijane Sills, re-stages George Balanchine’s Tarantella (1964), a delightful and fast-paced pas de deux.
Meanwhile, acclaimed guest artist Eve Chan, resident guest choreographer of Hong Kong Ballet, offers a thrilling new contemporary ballet work.
Guest artist Joseph Hernandez, whose celebrated international career includes the rosters of The Royal Ballet of Flanders, Les Ballets de Monte Carlo, and the Semperoper Ballett Dresden, creates a new work designed specifically for the Purchase Dance Company and inspired by the mystery, magic, and suspense of Broadway.
Rounding out the program is a premiere by renowned artist Marcus Jarrell Willis, formerly of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Willis brings his signature blend of modern dance and ballet to bear on the creation of choreography that feels like a silent movie incorporating subtle, yet witty tendencies.
FREE Pre-Concert Artist Talk at 7:15pm on Friday, December 6.
