WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Nicholas Andre Dance will present two world premieres: "Wired", set to music by Steve Reich and an untitled new work set to the music of Philip Glass. The company will also present recent repertory including: "Until Blue" (2009), an exhilarating, fast paced athletic work that pushes the dancers to their limits through the pure joy of movement. "Passage" (2009) is a full company work interspersed with soft gestures that grows in volume like a conversation, with graciousness and ends with the image of a wave ebbing and flowing on the shore. The piece follows the deliberate nomadic journey of a group across the land to new beginnings. "Undercurrent" (2009) features a quartet of men and women, with two different casts depending on the performance, who gracefully grow throughout the work while keeping a constant through line. The use of counterpoint and staging teases the eye without ever demanding it look in any one place. The company will also perform a repertory favorite "The Last Man" (2007), a defining piece of Mr. Ross' work as a choreographer that is dedicated to the memory of the late Richard Cook. Dancers: Katlyn Baskin, Kristy Engel, Trista Jennings Jeremy Nedd, Morgan Palmer, Christopher Ralph, Juan Rodriguez (appears courtesy of Complexions Contemporary Ballet), Tommy Scrivens and Aaron Walter. Lighting design by Burke Wilmore.
