Sounddance, Fabrications, Devoted
“The whole experience, music and dancing was an exhilarating rush.” —Washington Post
The acclaimed CCN-Ballet de Lorraine celebrates Merce Cunningham’s legacy with a rare chance to see two of his groundbreaking works. The evening features the dramatic, Walker-commissioned Fabrications and the “organized chaos” of Sounddance, performed at a high velocity from start to finish to a thundering electronic score by David Tudor.
The program also includes Devoted, a new ballet by the young choreographic duo Cecilia Bengolea and François Chaignaud (part of Trajal Harrell’s Mimosa at Out There 2013), with a score by Philip Glass.
