A travelogue is defined as a lecture or brochure on travels. This new dance series introduces Abrons’ audiences to choreographers and dance works that come from right here in NYC, or not, and which Laurie Uprichard, the curator, has seen in NYC, or not. She was Director of Danspace Project from 1992-2007 and of the Dublin (Ireland) Dance Festival from 2007-2011.
Daniel Léveillé Danse: Solitudes solo (US Premiere)
January 30-31 | 8 PM
February 1 | 3 PM
On the horizon of purity where this pared-down choreography unfolds, an impossible expectation questions “the beyond.” In Solitudes solo, each dancer exposes a particular facet of ourselves, a temporal moment in a life aiming toward unity and beauty, knowing it can only attain this height at the risk of breaking and falling. Five solos evanesce into immateriality. Daniel Léveillé founded his company in 1981. Three previous works, Amour, Acide et Noix, La Pudeur des Icebergs, and La Crépuscule des Océans were presented at Danspace Project, during Uprichard’s tenure, to audience and critical acclaim. Uprichard has seen Solitudes solo in Paris and in Montreal.
