The Sharon Disney Lund School of Dance at CalArts presents its annual Winter Dance Concert. This evening of new dance features works by 2013 Herb Alpert-Award winning choreographer Julia Rhoads and CalArts faculty members Julie Bour and Colin Connor.
The company’s latest program of new dance works features choreography by Herb Alpert Award-winner Susan Rethorst, New York-based choreographer Ivy Baldwin, and the company’s artistic director, Melanie Ríos Glaser.
Internationally acclaimed composer Yotam Haber’s soaring, impassioned three-movement work for orchestra, chorus, four soloists, electronic sound and video commemorates watershed events of the Civil Rights Movement.
For her first major U.S. presentation, A Reading that Writes - a Physical Act II, Amsterdam-based artist Yael Davids develops a new performance together with Los Angeles-based dance artist taisha paggett, which takes place within the gallery installation. Combining movement and text, the performers activate the elements of the installation, manipulating the arrangement of objects—wooden structures, ropes, and large glass panes.
The work of Pablo Bronstein is distinguished by a series of projects and public interventions in which he assumes the role of art historian, architect and choreographer, the artist reconstructs historical moments and mimics them in tableaux vivants. The newly commissioned project that Pablo Bronstein creates at REDCAT functions as a "staged essay" where the artist articulates, by means of a series of drawings and furniture, the origins of architecture from the naturalistic perspective of the Enlightenment.
