The missing door (US Premiere) Choreography by Gabriela Carrizo
Walk the Demon (US Premiere) Choreography by Marco Goecke
Singulière Odyssée (New York Premiere) Choreography by Sol León and Paul Lightfoot
Intertwining fantasy and reality, Gabriela Carrizo creates two parallel dimensions in The missing door. In the last minutes of life—which take place in the twilight zone between life and death—a dying man anxiously tries to find a way through the intricate maze of his thoughts in this daring and at times violent work. Marco Goecke’s Walk the Demon builds upon a body of work which exhibits his signature movement vocabulary. Like his other pieces, Walk the Demon features a range of musical styles from string quartets to Antony and the Johnsons’ “The Lake” combined with the dancers’ own acoustic voices—screeching, roaring, cursing—to make them appear less abstract and human. Singulière Odyssée by house choreographers—Sol León and Paul Lightfoot—is set in an Art Deco train station where dancers come and go as passersby except for one who lingers, frozen in time. Performed to Max Richter’s “Exiles,” composed specifically for this piece, Singulière Odyssée is a reflection on travel and transformation.
