Event

Sounds of Sokolow: ODES
Anna Sokolow's  "ODES"; the electric music of Edgard Varèse; the Merce Cunningham Studio....seems an appropriate fit for the Sokolow Theatre/Dance Ensemble's fall season happening on November 10-13.

Twenty three dancers will perform this "powerful work about civilization". Widely acknowledged as the dance that influenced a young Pina Bausch, Odes was last seen at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in 1968. Artistic Director Jim May made his debut with the Anna Sokolow Company at that time, dancing the famous duet.  A rare documentary film showing Ms. Sokolow rehearsing Odes will also be shown.

SOUNDS OF SOKOLOW is a three-part Series featuring Sokolow Masterworks as part of a live music initiative which includes Sokolow's Kurt Weill (1988) performed in 2010, Odes (1965) with music by Edgard Varèse and Lyric Suite (1953) with music by Alban Berg.

Additionally on the program: "Two Preludes", a solo choreographed by Ms. Sokolow for Evelyn Shepard with music of Rachmaninov and "At the Still Point", a solo by Ernestine Stodelle with text by T.S. Eliot, reconstructed by Gail Corbin. Artistic Director Jim May will also dance a solo choreographed by himself.

All and all, a very unique and special event.
