Armitage Gone! Dance – WORLD PREMIERE - Mechanics of the Dance Machine

          Post Show talk Feb. 1: "Dance and Fashion" – Karole Armitage, Alba Clemente, Peter Speliopoulos

          Post Show talk Feb. 6: "Sustaining A Career In Dance" – Karole Armitage, Elise Monte, Stephen Petronio

Fiercely pure…she presents the performers as molten steel cooling into stunning shapes, yet also reminds us that they are not clones of a technique but individuals, with minds, moods and imperfections of their own.”

The Village Voice 

Hailed by some critics as an heir to both George Balanchine and Merce Cunningham, Karole Armitage returns to Dance Theater Workshop/New York Live Arts for the first time since the premiere of her groundbreaking work, Drastic-Classicism (1981).

For her 2013 premiere, Mechanics of the Dance Machine, Armitage is exploring a new form of presentation. The audience is invited on stage with the dancers to see movement from novel points of view and to participate in the performance itself by following light cues indicating where to walk or stand. Those who prefer to sit can reserve seats and will see evolving checkerboard patterns rich in geometrical design with dancers moving thorough unconventional frames and oddly shaped spaces. 

Mechanics of the Dance Machine alternates between fierce dance and metaphors of intimacy and its unfinished business. Armitage will continue mixing pointe work and non-pointe work with fractal geometry (the shape of mountains and clouds), improvisation, and contemporary practices in a hybrid performance with music by composer, Gabriel Prokofiev, a dance, grime, electro and hip hop producer trained in classical composition. (Gabriel is the grandson of Sergei Prokofiev.) Using material from Prokofiev’s Concerto for Turntable and Orchestra, and nostalgic fragments of Bach, Armitage and dancers explore a new framework for expressive movement suffused with eroticism, fertile impurities, improper hybrids and unexpected idiosyncrasies.
