ERYC TAYLOR DANCE
Eryc Taylor Dance,
a New York City-based company devoted to the exploration of innovative and theatrical choreography on pointe, presents four World Premieres at The Ailey Citigroup Theater, The Joan Weil Center for Dance, 405 W. 55th Street at Ninth Avenue, NYC on Tuesday, October 6, 2009 at 8pm.

Eryc Taylor Dance will present four world premieres: an as-yet-untitled dance set to Harry Gregson-Williams’ "All Others Pay Cash" from the soundtrack of the film "The Taking of Pelham 123"; a duet set to the music of The White Stripes, "Ginga" (pronounced Jenga), the fundamental movement in capoeira, an Afro-Brailian art form combining elements of martial arts, dance, games and music; "InsideOut", a pas de deux evoking both fragility and strength, set to music by Sebastian by Terry Davies & The BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and Erik Satie’s "Gnossiennes No.1 – Lent", performed by Lang Lang; and "Somewhere//Out There", performed by a quintet to three sections of music: Michael Fakesch’s "Vacancy Variant Acid Remix", Dario Marianelli’s "With My Own Eyes", and Conrad Kaneshiro’s "Autumn". The evening will also include "Eminent Domain" (2009), a dark, powerful, non-traditional piece danced on pointe by six forceful women who are intensely aware of their individual strengths, but who create a greater collective power together and "The Look" (2009), a solo that speaks to the memory of the loss of a first love, inspired by the song "The Look of Love" by Dusty Springfield.
Dancers: Dwayne Brown, Jenna Dannenberger, Isabel Fernandez, Erin Ginn, Lydia Haug, Rachel Hamrick, Hope Kroog, Carly Mayer, and Shane Ohmer. Costume design is by Tonatiuh Otero.
