The ensemble will perform “11/11”, created by French/Israeli choreographer Line Haddad.  The piece is set to music composed by Raphaël Beau. Ms. Haddad said of her piece: With the past and future trying to get our attention, we tend to forget the present.

“Arctic Memory” is a solo choreographed by Jody Sperling to music by composers Brooks Williams and Beo Morales. It will be performed by Valerie Levine. This version of “Arctic Memory” is adapted from material Sperling developed during a 43-day polar science mission to the Arctic. While there, as the first and to-date only choreographer-in-residence aboard a US Coast Guard icebreaker, Sperling danced on sea ice and made the short film “Ice Floe,” winner of a Creative Climate Award. The work draws inspiration from modern-dance pioneer Loïe Fuller (1862-1928).

The final ensemble piece will be “Rhapsody in Blue” to music by George Gershwin. It was choreographed by ITNY’s Ensemble Director, Elisa Angeli.
