WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
ALWIN NIKOLAIS 2010: A Centennial Celebration 2010 marks the centennial of the birth of the visionary choreographer Alwin Nikolais (1910-1993). To celebrate his work and legacy, Henry Street Settlement is mounting this once-in-a-lifetime weekend of reunions and re-creations. In this celebratory "live dance documentary," dance legends Murray Louis and Phyllis Lamhut join with over 30 other artists, teachers, students, and fans onstage to honor Nikolais' life and enduring influence. Curated by Tina Croll and Jamie Cunningham. During his tenure as the Artistic Director of the Henry Street Playhouse (1948-69), Nikolais pushed beyond the boundaries of contemporary dance to create hallucinogenic wonders of movement, lighting, sound, and setting. A pioneer of multimedia technology, Nikolais' prolific imagination shaped 20th century performance and continues to inspire -- and astound -- artists and audiences today.
