Driven by a distinct vision for reimagining classical ballet vocabulary in an ultra-post-modern framework, Pam Tanowitz’s dances elegantly layer full-bodied dancing with a clear visual design. The Spectators continues Tanowitz's investigation of dance steps as objects and will explore decorative movements alongside practical and structural movements. Consisting of a series of interrelated solos, duets and ensemble pieces, The Spectators is set to music by Annie Gosfield played live by The FLUX Quartet and an original score by Dan Siegler.
