Dance
$20-$105
3/21-23

Artistic director José Manuel Carreño has assembled a program that explores how two centuries of popular music has influenced modern and contemporary choreographers. Paul Taylor’s Piazzolla Caldera highlights the smoldering passions and complexities of tango demonstrating the genre’s flexibility. Dwight Rhoden mines the richly nuanced songs of Nat King Cole, while Igal Perry plumbs the monumental lyricism of the adagio from one of Beethoven’s most enduringly popular piano sonatas (the Hammerklavier). The late Venezuelan dance-maker Vicente Nebrada’s Nuestros Valses ("Our Waltzes”) is a playfully sublime homage to the quintessential social dance.
