Peridance Contemporary Dance Company
Monday, January 23
Dance tells a story with movement, emotion, passion, and beauty. Come meet the dancers of Peridance Contemporary Dance Company and watch them perform. The old and the new will meet. Interspersed with live performances, will be brief film clips and introductions of the same dance pieces performed by different dancers with different interpretations throughout the company’s years.
In their home in nearby Union Square, Igal Perry, world-renowned choreographer, Founder and Artistic Director of the Peridance Capezio Center and Peridance Contemporary Dance Company, and guest teacher at Jacob’s Pillow and the Juilliard School, guides the company through works requiring trust, collaboration, incredible strength, superb technique and expert timing. These elements combined guarantee a varied, exciting repertoire from jazz to cutting edge contemporary - all utilizing a strong balletic technique. As part of Mr. Perry’s quest for originality and unique identity, he has sought out collaboration with other choreographers, artists, composers, musicians and designers to enable him to fulfill his mission of offering the public visionary and strongly executed performances.
In addition to their Fall and Spring Seasons presented in the Capezio Center Theater, the company, composed of dancers from around the world, has intrigued and excited audiences internationally as well as across the United States.
