Kanopy Dance Presents RIOULT: Hearts Entwined

RIOULT: HEARTS ENTWINED

FRI, FEB 12 – SUN, FEB 14

2016-02-11 Kanopy Charis Haines & Jere Hunt42016-02-11 Kanopy Wien2

2016-02-11 Kanopy Prelude&Fuge2

Luscious, complicated, mythic, delightful, discordant. Headlined by guest artist, former Martha Graham Principal Dancer Pascal Rioult and his eponymous New York-based Company, Kanopy Dancers will dance his dark masterwork “Wein.” It is a whirlpool of bodies, the moral decay of Vienna society danced to a Viennese waltz by Ravel. It shares the evening with a pair of romantic duets – excerpts from “Views of the Fleeting World” and “On Distant Shores” – danced by Rioult Company dancers Charis Haines and Jere Hunt. “Prelude & Fugue,” a work of Lisa Thurrell’s magic, and “Luminous” a premiere by choreographer Robert E. Cleary fulfills our Valentine card.

Li Chiao-Ping Dance Explores Culture, Body Image and The Self in “Fluid Measure”

Li Chiao-Ping Dance will transport audiences across the landscapes of Asian and Western identities in Fluid Measure, opening March 3, 2016 at the Margaret H’Doubler Performance Space, Lathrop Hall, 1050 University Ave., Madison.

“Fluid Measure,” examines the questions of identity and kinship. The piece draws its depth from an integrated cast of company dancers and community performers.

Madison audiences will get the rare treat to see work by New York-based guest artist Heidi Latsky, who will present “ON DISPLAY” in the theater lobby before the concert. This renowned installation explores the body as a spectacle, society’s obsession with body image and the reclaiming of self image.

Latsky creates “provocative, highly technical and physically adventurous dance” focused on both virtuosity and disability, including performances by diverse, “unexpected bodies.”

Li Chiao-Ping Dance and the UW-Madison Dance Department present Fluid Measure Thursday, March 3 and Friday, March 4 at 8 p.m., and March 5 at 2:30 p.m.

A reception with the performers will follow the Friday, March 4 performance in the Virginia Harrison Parlor in Lathrop Hall. Refreshments will be served. A free concert for Dane County students will be held Friday, March 4 at 10 a.m. Contact the company for more information and reservations.

Tickets are $20 general public, $15 for students and seniors, and may be purchased in advance at www.uniontheater.wisc.edu, by phone 608-265-2787, or in person at the Campus Arts Box Office, Memorial Union, 800 Langdon St., Madison. Reserved seating.
