PENTACLE, since 1975 one of the leading dance management organizations in New York, presents a showcase of six of its "Gallery" companies, performing works from their current repertory, April 2&3, at 7:30 PM, at Dixon Place, 161A Chrystie Street. Performing works from their current and touring repertories are BARKIN/SELISSEN PROJECT, Jessica Gaynor Dance, LCTC - Lorraine Chapman The Company, Helen Simoneau Danse, white road Dance Media, and Bill Young/Colleen Thomas & Company. (All companies will appear each night.)
BARKIN/SELISSEN PROJECT, directed by Kyla Barkin and Aaron Selissen, will present three works created during the 2012-14 period: "Indelible Cognition," (which will premiere in June in Berlin, Germany); "Hot Knife in Cold Butter" and "Reflexive," two works-in-progress.
JESSICA GAYNOR DANCE will present a duet performed by Emily Diers and Jordan Risdon, an excerpt from Gaynor's 'Intimate Gestures," premiered last November, supported by a New Music USA Commission for the original score by Devin Maxwell.
LCTC - LORRAINE CHAPMAN & COMPANY will present "wait for ME fellas," a new work - in-the-works - an abstracted deconstruction of four vaudeville acts from 1935. The full version was recently performed by 18 Boston Conservatory students in the company's hometown of Boston.
HELEN SIMONEAU, originally from Quebec, will show a duet from her touring repertory. Her company, Helen Simoneau Danse, won the A.W.A.R.D. Show! 2010 in NYC, as well as 1st Place for Choreography at the 13th Internationales Solo-Tanz-Theatre Festival in Stuttgart.
white road Dance Media will perform a new work by Marisa Gruneberg, a darkly deconstructed rendering for three women of The Goose Girl, in which a beheaded horse sagely records and reports a warped tale of love, grace, and guts.
BILL YOUNG/COLLEEN & CO. will present a duet from their full length work "A Place in France," which premiered last May. The work "slips about the way dreams do. Imagination and wit run hand in hand with beauty." Deborah Jowitt
