Dance Center, Theater 1306 S. Michigan, Chicago, IL, 60605

ReComposed, Boats Leaving, and folded, a duet from in the shelter of the fold

“Many choreographers can create interesting movement; few can make it mean so much.”
– Chicago Tribune

Celebrating their 30th anniversary year, Doug Varone and Dancers returns to the Dance Center stage for the first time since 2001. ReComposed is a visual dance creation inspired by the visceral imagery of American abstract expressionist Joan Mitchell and set to Michael Gordon’s explosive score, Dystopia. The company also performs the duet folded from in the shelter of the fold, a cycle of episodic, stand-alone vignettes that explore the many forms of faith and belief, as well as the acts of coping, realization, choice and the expectations attached to it. The vignette folded, set to music by Julia Wolfe, examines the fragile and precarious nature of intimacy.
