Event description

Description

Cherylyn Lavagnino, contemporary ballet choreographer and Artistic Director of Cherylyn Lavagnino Dance will present a program of dance and live music for two evenings at the NYU Tisch School of the Arts Jack Crystal Theater.

The program will include four works by Lavagnino, plus a live violin performance by Derek Ratzenboeck, best known for his work with New York City Ballet since 2011.

Kamila (2017) is inspired by the poetry and music of Leoš Janáček’s song cycle, The Diary of One Who Disappeared. Lavagnino’s interpretation plays with the connection between Kamila (Janáček’s muse and love interest) and the Gypsy. His unfulfilled desire for Kamila generated the emotional intent for the character of the gypsy and her relationship with the young farmer portrayed throughout the song cycle.

Veiled (2016), a work for a female cast of six, explores the idea of preserving physical and internal grace in the face of oppression. Martin Bresnick’s, suspenseful score creates a mood that the dancers embody, referencing the plight of Islamic women.

Summer Time (2017) is a duet inspired by Edward Hopper’s painting Summer Evening, set to Janis Joplin’s recording of George Gershwin’s Summertime.

RU (2014) inspired by a novel of the same name written by Kim Thúy, RU describes a young woman’s life as a post-Vietnam War political refugee. The dancers, in costumes reminiscent of the traditional Vietnamese áo dài dress, move inside composer Scott Killian’s shadowy landscape, their movement suggestive of contrasts between struggle and grace, stoicism and despair.

Cherylyn Lavagnino's choreographic mission is to create movement that engages an audience by aligning the rigor of ballet with the humanistic performance values of contemporary dance. Her choreography uses pointe work as a platform to delve into the range of human interaction and emotion. The unconventional use of ballet expresses complex and honest portrayals through the choreography and the dancers. Music is paramount to her creative process, and its influence pushes and prods the imagery.
