405 W 55th Street, New York, NY 10019
A showcase of CLD works featuring Veiled, plus a selection of excerpts from Kamila, Dix en Jeu, and Drive as part of the world's premier gathering of the performing arts presenting industry and the annual APAP members conference.
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 Bresnicks, suspenseful score creates a mood that the dancers embody, referencing the plight of Islamic women.
Kamila (2017): is inspired by the poetry and music of Leo Janáeks song cycle, The Diary of One Who Disappeared. Lavagninos interpretation plays with the connection between Kamila (Janáeks muse and love interest) and the Gypsy.
Dix en Jeu (2018): A re-creation of Treize en Jeu (2013), now titled Dix en Jeu, features duets, trios and solos set against a backdrop of counterpoint group entrances and exits to create a textured stage picture that reflects the complexity of the musical score of Franz Schuberts Trio in E Flat Major, Fourth Movement.
Drive (2016): Lavagnino creates a double male/female duet with angular, taut movement vocabulary to explore the uncompromising aspects of ourselves that extend to our most personal relationships, set to Scott Killian's haunting original score.
