A 50th Finale

Saturday, June 14, 2014 - 8:00pm
Merriam Theater

Celebrate the culmination of the 50th Anniversary Season with a forward-thinking finale. Nuance and depth saturate In the middle, somewhat elevated, William Forsythe’s frenetic experiment in abstract movement, set to Thom Willems pulsating, electronic soundscape. An American choreographer, Forsythe spent most of his working life in Europe, and has become known for his unusual language of dance. It’s classical ballet, but with an off-kilter edge: off-balance positions, extreme extensions, and increased hip action. Also on this program, Chorographer in Residence Matthew Neenan’s 15th commission for the Company and a work soon-to-be announced.
