REP at Danspace Project

The company returns to Danspace Project for their fifth season with:

• Richard Alston's The Seasons, one of the Best Dance Picks of 2018 by The New York Times. A serene and limpid meditation on the cycle of a year in Nature, the music has an extraordinary clarity with images of Quiescence (Winter), Creation (Spring), Preservation (Summer) and, intriguingly, Destruction (Fall), which all come from Indian philosophical thought;

• Matthew Nash’s 1981 take on The Elements of Style, from Strunk and White’s classic guide to writing;

• Merce Cunningham’s Scramble (1967) the first piece whose designer, Frank Stella, was selected by Jasper Johns after his appointment as artistic advisor of the Cunningham Co. It consists of eighteen sections whose order could be changed, or omitted. The music by Toshi Ichiyanagi (Activities for Orchestra) is scored for western instruments. NYTB’s Scramble is part of the Merce Cunningham Centennial Celebration.
NYTB REP performances are made possible, in part, through the Danspace Project’s Community ACCESS Series that provides subsidized off-season rental opportunities for Danspace Project community members
