Figure in the Distance (Mattingly/ Glass)
Tom Mattingly returns to bring his choreographic contribution to last season’s New Works Festival fully to life. With its clean lines and shifting dynamics, Figure in the Distance is intricately beautiful in its simplicity.
The Moor’s Pavane (Limón/ Purcell)
Back by popular demand, The Moor’s Pavane is a deeply passionate work that draws its inspiration from Shakespeare’s Othello. Considered by many to be renowned choreographer José Limón’s greatest masterpiece, The Moor’s Pavane offers dancers the opportunity to master a gravity-driven technique and audiences the opportunity to be moved by a familiar story in an unfamiliar manner.
