An evolving selection of classic works collected in an intimate evening of dance and theater. Between Us offers entry into rarely available pieces from the company's repertory created over a decade-long span beginning in the late '80s. The program focuses on simple, beautiful dances-many duets-that continue to be relevant and intriguing portraits of the bond between two people. Restaged in many cases for the first time, these dances contrast the expansive theatrical works the company is known for.
This focused evening provides a satisfying look at the core of the Jones/Zane style: dancers with individual personalities, body types, and backgrounds; partnering that is unconventional and unexpected; and a choreographic palette that draws from classical ballet, postmodern abstraction, and arrangements of gesture and shape influenced by film and photography. The evening offers notable musical moments as well: studded with popular and moving works that actuate the choreography, songs shape the evening with equal finesse.
The humanity and peril implicit in the most essential yet complex of relationships-the partnership-is the focus of this program. An evening of movement and music surveying Jones and Zane's exceptional body of work, Between Us will satisfy those looking for the beauty of emotionally and intellectually engaging dance.
