Annabella Gonzalez Dance Theater (AGDT) presents "MOVIMIENTO" (Movement) on March 22nd & 23rd (3 concerts) with three premieres and repertoire highlights.
AGDT, the critically acclaimed modern dance company of Mexican-born Artistic Director Annabella Gonzalez, presents "MOVIMIENTO", its 2013 Spring Series, at Manhattan Movement & Arts Center on Friday, March 22, at 8 p.m. and on Saturday, March 23, at 3 p.m. and at 8 p.m. Featured are three world premieres and dances from the Company's repertoire. Many works reflect AGDT's special mix of European and American classical music with Latin flavored movement.
The varied program of abstract, theatrical and comedic dances challenges and engages. The premieres are Rhythmic Study by Annabella Gonzalez with Latino rhythms set to an original score by contemporary West Coast composer Peter Sivalia, Upon The Air by noted guest Maxine Steinman with her own music collage and Talk Back, a study in syncopation by Jinah Parker with jazz music by Justin Hicks.
Repertoire by Ms. Gonzalez includes the sextet Pastoral Latino with spirited music by famed composer Seymour Barab, the enigmatic and theatrical Adam and Eve duet The Fall?, a spoof on the Adam and Eve theme with mesmerizing sounds of birds and Joggornot, a satire on Central Park joggers with music by Elisabeth Jaquet de la Guerre, a rare 17th century French female composer whom AGDT wishes to make better known.
"The world at her feet" wrote Adam Rathe or Our Town, "Imaginative troupe is enduring family" declared Anthony Liversidge of Talk in NY and Jack Anderson of the NY Times highlighted "Formal structures intensify choreographic tensions". Movimiento is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council, and with support by The Harkness Foundation for Dance, The Mexican Cultural Institute of New York, and Friends of AGDT.
