The Gift/No God Logic, set to music from Verdi’s Forza del Destino, is a beautiful, sparse work choreographed by Arnie Zane. The dance develops through a strikingly restrained and precise physical vocabulary. Dancers move together and apart, but always with compassion and awareness of one another. The apparent simplicity of the work belies its technical difficulty. To quote Jennifer Dunning in her 1988 review of the work, “It is a dance of memorable simplicity and un-ironic emotion.”
