Message details:
Tero Saarinen, one of the world's most renowned contemporary choreographers, brings his powerful and expressive style to Morphed, a new work with music by Esa-Pekka Salonen. A band of seven men seduce, demand, and swagger, with both music and movement ranging from brutally aggressive to meditatively soft and minimalistic. Saarinen has written an all-male piece only once before: 1996's watershed Westward Ho. In his words, "Eighteen years on, I felt the need to bring together men of various ages and dance backgrounds, this time to address themes such as change and sensuality." Saarinen, who works and resides in Finland, has been celebrated internationally for expanding the traditional vocabulary of Western contemporary dance, taking inspiration from Japanese Butoh and Kabuki theatre as much as classical European ballet. "Aware," "alert," and "attentive" are the company's core principles. Post-show Q & A with Assistant Professor of Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies and Faculty Affiliate in Anthropology/Sociology Gregory Mitchell This performance is made possible by the W. Ford Schumann '50 Endowment for the Arts and the Lipp Family Fund for Performing Artists.
