This special program mixes works by David Parker with those of seminal, avant-garde choreographer James Waring and acclaimed choreographer, dancer, director, actor and teacher, Aileen Passloff, revived especially for this event.
Dances include James Waring’s Eccentric Beauty Revisited (1972) “…a brief, charming solo inspired by Nijinsky’s exotic novelty piece Le Dieu Bleu.” Marina Harss, The New Yorker, and 12 Objects from Tender Buttons (1972) staged by Richard Colton, Aileen Passloff’s world premier AT THE WINDOW and David Parker’s three dances - Two Timing (2015), The Velcro Duet from Slap Stuck (2004) "Choreographer David Parker deconstructs the familiar to make sly, affectionate dances that reveal the essence of things. His tools for doing so? A passion for rhythm, a keen kinetic wit, and the ability to detect both irony and joy in everyday circumstances." Thea Singer, The Boston Globe, and We’re Not Married (1990). Featured: a reading by Pepper Fajans from David Vaughan’s soon-to-be-published James Waring biography and a discussion with Parker and Passloff that follows the performances.
