"53 Movements" (World Premiere) by Neville Dance Theatre
Neville Dance Theatre
Manhattan's compellingly innovative contemporary ballet company Neville
Dance Theatre takes on legendary composer Terry Riley’s 1963 musical
masterpiece ‘In C’ this spring in a bold new work entitled '53 Movements'
for their 13th season.
Often referred to as the founding work of music minimalism, Terry Riley's
pioneering composition 'In C' consists of 53 short, set musical phrases
played with improvisational aspects. In the same vein, choreographer
Brenda Neville and the company's dancers have created 53 corresponding
choreographic phrases, also originating from and performed with
improvisational liberties to Bang On a Can All-Stars 2011 live performance
The end result? An intricately layered feast of music and movement that is
unique with each and every performance. Not to be missed!
