WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
360° Dance Company presents "Encounters," it's 2013 New York City season at Ailey Citigroup Theater, with five diverse works shedding light on human interactions, including the World Premiere of Only For The Deranged, choreographed by Artistic Director Martin Lofsnes. Tenant of the Street, a company premiere choreographed by Eve Gentry in 1938, is a captivating and unsettling solo depicting the loss of humanity undergone by a homeless woman. Regular Chain of Being, choreographed by Lauri Stallings, is a tender journey for two set to Bellini's Casta Diva. This is the company's second commission by Ms. Stallings and was created in collaboration with gloATL, Atlanta GA. Martin Lofsnes' Near Dark is the artistic director's response to five passages from the writings of artist Edward Munch. And returning to the company's repertory is Filip A. Condeescu's Countertime, a poignant duet depicting the love and uncertainty between two men.
