Armitage Gone! Dance

Armitage Gone! Dance - NEW YORK SEASON
March 4th-14th, 2009 at 8pm.
Tix $15
Think Punk!

Celebrating 30 years of her choreography, Armitage Gone! Dance presents a world premiere and selections from Karole Armitage’s landmark works.
Dubbed the “Punk Ballerina,” Armitage pioneered a high-voltage, hard-rock ballet style that pushed the limits of classical ballet technique and re-envisioned its sonic and pictorial environment.
“Drastic Classicism” (1981), music by Rhys Chatham, delivers a skewed classical vocabulary with full force. “Watteau Duets” (1985), music by David Linton, deconstructs the pas de deux, plus “Wild Thing” (1987), music by Jimi Hendrix and set by Jeff Koons, and the world premiere “Mashup,” with a new score by Daniel Iglesia.

Dancers: Leonides D. Arpon, Krisitina Bethel, Giorgia Bovo, Megumi Eda, William Isaac, Dana Marie Ingraham, Luke Manley , Matthew Prescott, Abbey Roesner, Bennyroyce Royon and Masayo Yamaguchi
Rehearsal Director: Brian Carey Chung
With music director John King and TALIBAM! (Matt Mottle and Kevin Shea) and guitarists Sarah Lipstate, Steve Gunn, Paul Duncan and Tom Gerke.

* In addition to “Drastic Classicism,” and “Mashup,” Leonides D. Arpon performs “Wild Thing” with Dana Marie Ingraham on March 6th, 7th, 12th, 13th.
