Aileen Passloff presents "Stepping Forward: One Foot (in front of the other)"
The 92nd St. y's Dig Dance will present AILEEN PASSLOFF, Stepping Forward: One Foot (in front of the other), a program of dances by Passloff spanning her creative years from the early 1960s, when she was one of the pioneers of the early Judson Church modern dance scene, to new works receiving their world premieres.
Passloff has also recreated two solos that she performed: James Waring's 1958 "Octandre," here danced by Nic Petry, and Remy Charlip's 1964 "April and December, " danced by Charlotte hendrickson. Live music will be provided by pianists Doug Schultz, Michael Scales and Michael Cherry, and guitarist Arturo Martinez. Passloff's ensemble will be joined by dancers from David Parker's The Bang Group. The performance will include short excerpts from two films by Marta Renzi: her "Arthur and Aileen," documenting the rehearsal process between Passloff and Arthur Aviles, and from Renzi's acclaimed "Her Magnum Opus," featuring early 1960s footage of Passloff dancing Charlip's "April and December."
