5th Anniversary Season!!!
Company: Celebrating their fifth anniversary, Battleworks Dance Company presents Robert Battle’s strong choreography with vigor and technical virtuosity. Battle’s provocative work runs the gamut from humorous to viscerally jarring, and his dancers “are magnificent, flinging themselves into movement phrases with frenzied energy” (The Boston Globe). The program will introduce New York audiences to Battle’s newest work Reel Time, a collaboration with composer John King that explores the human tendency towards violence. It will also feature Battle’s Juba, an original commission by the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, performed for the first time by Battleworks Dance Company with a live rendition of John Mackey’s propulsive string and percussion score. Completing the evening will be two new solos, Ella and In/Side, and the perennial favorite Overture.
