DOUG VARONE AND DANCERS
Tuesday, October 20, at 7:30 p.m., Fine Arts Center Concert Hall, Chamber Seating
Performing ReComposed and Lux
Doug Varone’s kinetically-thrilling dances explore the complexity of the human spirit. From the smallest gesture to full-throttle bursts of movement, Varone’s work can take your breath away. The program will feature ReComposed, a visual dance creation inspired by American abstract artist Joan Mitchell’s pastel drawings, set to Max Richter’s newly constructed version of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons. Doug Varone and his company have been hailed as “superb dancers…always worth seeing” by The New York Times.
Audience members are invited to stay for a post-performance talk with the company immediately following the performance.
