In celebration of its 25th performance season, the Ellen Sinopoli Dance Company performs at The Egg’s Hart Theatre at 8pm tonight (Friday, April 29) in a program that will feature the premiere of Tumble, set to the music of Terry Riley, written for four hands on one piano. The evening will begin with a 7:15pm prelude talk given by Artistic Director Ellen Sinopoli.
The remainder of the program will feature a retrospective of ESDC’s most popular works from the last 25 years:
Sandungera – This dance revels in the groove, sensuality and rhythm of Latin jazz and Cuban music.
Rising Low – With blues and country music, this dance tells a poignant tale of loss and loneliness.
Becoming – Based on a Rainer Maria Rilke poem, this dance for a solo female pulsates with longing, questioning and beauty to Zoe B. Zak’s music for voice and accordion that brings a captivating combination of tonalities that are tied to her Jewish-American roots.
