Buglisi Dance Theatre 20th Anniversary, The Joyce: NYC-ARTS | Dance

Buglisi Dance Theatre's passionate dancing and sublime theatricality speak to the visceral strengths and vulnerabilities of humanity. Celebrating its 20th anniversary season, the company will perform Artistic Director Jacqulyn Buglisi's signature works "Requiem" and "Suspended Women," along with company favorites "Caravaggio Meets Hopper" and "Rain." The two programs, with live music featured on both, also include three world premieres. "This is Forever" is set to a rhapsody performed live (on opening night) by composer Steve Margoshes; "Snow Falling on Water," exploring the mystery and secrets of growing up in Brooklyn, is set to a tender score by Andy Teirstein that is performed live; "Butterflies and Demons" is set to music by Daniel Bernard Roumain; and a solo commission by guest choreographer Katarzyna Skarpetowska. Nacho Duato solo excerpts from "Arenal" are a season highlight.
