About this show

David Gordon's verbal dexterity is matched only by the virtuosity of his physical language, his hallmark punning, about-faces, and multiple meanings. In his extended Private Lives of Dancers all language implies action and possibilities for layering the spoken word and movement abound. He ricochets between the scrupulously literal and the fancifully symbolic meanings of both words and actions, and is most happy, it seems, when these things exist simultaneously. As part of the Joyce's Humanities Series, there is a post-performance dialogue with the Artistic Director on Wednesday, February 19.
