Driven by a distinct vision for reimagining classical ballet vocabulary in an ultra-post-modern framework, Tanowitz’s dances elegantly layer full-bodied dancing with a clear visual design. InThe Spectators, Tanowitz continues her investigation of dance steps as objects and will explore decorative movements alongside practical and structural movements, paring them down, setting them on edge, blowing them up in a bird’s eye view, running them past one another and leading them forward and askew. FLUX quartet will be performing Annie Gosfield’s score Lightheaded andHeavyhearted live.
