We return to the Center for the Arts with a medley of lively and intimate works. The performance opens on a playful note with Sport, called “cute, engaging…charming, bright” by Broadway World. Following is the passionate duet work Jenn and Spencer with musical accompaniment by one of Morris’s favorite composers, Henry Cowell. Suite for Violin and Piano provides a rich and turbulent musical landscape for the dancers. Pas de Poisson lightens the mood with a work for a trio of dancers set to music by Satie. The, set to one of the most famous Baroque compositions, Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 1 in F major, rounds out the exuberant evening of dance created by “the most successful and influential choreographer alive” (The New York Times).
