Dancer/choreographer Henning Rubsam will present his Sensedance, featuring new and repertory works danced
by his 9-member company, joined by internationally renowned prima ballerina
assoluta Eva Evdokimova.
The Company welcomes the return of Ms. Evdokimova, who appeared at
Sensedance's 10th Anniversary Season at The Kitchen in 2002. The ballerina will reprise the Schubert solos Litanei & Fruhlingsglaube (Litany & Faith in Spring), choreographed for her by Rubsam.
For an all female cast is Rubsam's slighting revised version of Garden,
created to traditional Iraqi music.
The versatile Rubsam will tackle the intricacies of pas de deux work with
longtime Sensedance principal Erika Pujic in the unpredictable new Petit
Rubsam will make his debut in his recent Gesange op. 6, set to music by
Brahms and premiered in June 2003 by guest dancer Christine Reisner. Rubsam will include the dance in his solo program, premiering later in October during his residency at the U of Idaho/Moscow.
Completing the program will be the audience favorite On the Fritz, a
"tour-de-farce:" set to a madcap collage of tunes performed by Duke
Ellington, Linda Ronsatadt, Stuff Smith, and Connie Francis. Erika Pujic, Ashley Sowell, and Rubsam lead the bright and breezy cast in this colorful camp delight.
