360° Dance Company presents it’s 2012 New York City season at Ailey Citigroup Theater with two World Premieres, a New York Premiere and a new reconstruction. Regular Chain of Being, choreographed by Lauri Stallings, is a journey of the “inter-human” for two, set to Bellini’s Casta Diva. This is the company’s second commission by Ms. Stallings and was created in collaboration with gloATL, Atlanta, GA. Martin Lofsnes’ new piece Near Dark is the artistic director’s response to five passages from the writings of artist Edward Munch. The New York premiere of Purpura (A Mi Padre) is a new dance theater work with text and choreography by Ricardo Flores. The work follows a man swirling through images of hopes, dreams, memories; striving to come to terms with the inevitable passing of time. The evening will also feature a new reconstruction of Pauline Koner’s The Shining Dark, a story based on Helen Keller with music by Leon Kirchner. Finally, Alessandra Prosperi’s Satsang (2010) is an exploration of the notion that humans cannot thrive alone, and that the need for each other is greater than we often come to realize.
