In Dire Circumstances is a program of dance, music and video. The evening of unique and thought provoking solos and duets choreographed by Ms. Wallie Wolfgruber will be performed by herself, Janet Forward and special guest Lawrence Goldhuber. Live music will be played by ABT pianist Colin Huggins. The evening includes Wolfgruber's " striking" (New York Times) signature solo Hatch and the 2004 duet American Blessings, a New York City premiere in which graceful dance sequences are juxtaposed against the harsh images of the Abu Ghraib prison scandal. The concert includes the film, A Hands-On Affair (created in collaboration with Alvin Booth), the sexiest two fingers you ever saw, and a world premiere solo choreographed for Mr. Goldhuber.
