Molissa Fenley & Co. Present The Floor Dances + Lecture
A rigorously choreographed program + a post-show lecture
With over 70 works in her repertoire, choreographer extraordinaire Molissa Fenley cuts a fine figure. The former Guggenheim fellow is back with two seminal pieces, Energizer, a quartet with music by Mark Freedman, and The Floor Dances, a solo performed by the lithe fifty-something herself. Her collaboration with visual artists makes for a dynamic program, but the real pull? The arresting physicality of her pieces. Stick around to discuss the works in a post-show lecture with Fenley and the company. Best available seating allocated by the venue on arrival.
"Devotion. Austerity. Intent. During an evening with Molissa Fenley’s coiled, concentrated dancing, certain words plant themselves in your brain. There is a stillness about her work and a heft that demand a particular type of attention."
