Doug Varone and Dancers
Saturday, February 5, 2011 at 8pm
From the smallest gesture to full-throttle bursts of movement, Doug Varone’s work can take your breath away. His company is known for its expansive vision, versatility, technical prowess and emotionally and kinesthetically engaging works. The New York Times describes Varone as “a creator of luxuriant, irresistibly dancey pieces whose principal concern seems to be to get at the essence of humanity by setting it in motion. Mr. Varone's ability to convey depths of emotion through highly charged, physically exciting choreography has made him a rarity among his generation.”
