Venue: The Joyce Theater
RIOULT Dance NY
An established name in modern dance with a reputation for performing sensual, articulate, and exquisitely musical works, RIOULT Dance NY performs two programs. Women on the Edge… Unsung Heroines of the Trojan War, a profound and timeless anti-war statement, features the world premiere of Cassandra’s Curse with commissioned music by Richard Danielpour performed by the Uptown Philharmonic under the baton of Kyle Ritenauer. The work is narrated by guest artist Kathleen Turner on June 21, 23 and 25. The second program is distinguished by the New York City premiere of Polymorphous, a piece exploring the subjectivity of perception through movement and technology; a suite of magnificent duets drawn from some of Pascal Rioult’s finest works; and fan favorite Bolero.
