Two new works by veteran choreographer Yvonne Meier feature the wild improvisations and challenging movement theatricality for which she is best known. The evening features an all-star cast of performers, including Miguel Gutierrez, Jennifer Monson, Nami Yamamoto, Jeremy Wade, Fabio deSilva, DD Dorvillier, and Jennifer Miller, as well as music by Chris Jaeger, Michael Jaeger, and Dave Gisler. this is not a pink pony, a love triangle in which a jump rope figures prominently, is part-fairy tale, part-Dr. Zhivago (a love story by Boris Pasterna set in the Russian Revolution). Gogolorez is Meier's ongoing improvisation project using her verbal "score technique," in which she assumes the role of ringmaster and calls out movement instructions to the dancers who obey her commands.
