2008-2009 Season

Armitage Gone! Dance– Summer of Love

Aug. 8, 2008 Lincoln Center Out of Door Festival, NYC


Summer of Love
Choreography Karole Armitage
Music Burkina Electric

Costumes Peter Speliopoulos

Armitage Gone! Dance, Lukas Ligeti and Burkina Electric join together for a Dionysian celebration in Summer of Love. Armitage’s mix of off-kilter ballet, club dance, and erotica ripple out in waves of fracturing crystalline motion. The music by Burkina Electric combines the burkinabé music of Burkina Faso and Western club electronica. Costumes by Peter Speliopoulos take inspiration from the documentary photography of sixties youth culture by Malick Sidibé in Mali and the hippie movement in the west.
