iconoGlass is inspired by the relentless pulse found in the music of Philip Glass. David Hochoy’s choreography creates landscapes of shapes, speed and patterns of movement. This demanding piece is truly one of the jewels from DK's repertoire.
Think Norman Rockwell and Aaron Copland on a late summer day and you get a sense of choreographer Christopher Dolder’s Riverboy. Dolder, who was raised in rural Northern California along the Feather River, takes us on a nostalgic trip down memory lane filled with the bucolic images of a carefree youth where laughter, play, and first love were all that mattered in the world. Former soloist with the Martha Graham Dance Company, Christopher Dolder has spent the last 15 years choreographing and performing with his wife in their company, Westwick/Dolder Dance Theater. He is a professor of dance at SMU's Meadows School for the Arts.
The Whole Against the Sky (2013)
Students from Butler Ballet will perform this moving piece choreographed by Cynthia Pratt.
—Rainer Maria Rilke
A woman says goodbye to two men she has known her whole life. The encounters are remembered and veiled in the mist of poignant recollection. This is the first piece David Hochoy choreographed while still working with the Martha Graham Dance Company in New York City.
An American in Paris (World Premiere)
David Hochoy will choreograph An American in Paris, a symphonic tone poem by the American composer George Gershwin. Inspired by the time Gershwin spent in Paris, it evokes the sights and energy of the French capital in the 1920s.
Rhapsody in Blue (2006)
A truly American classic that stylishly weaves jazz and classical music into an unforgettable event. "I heard it as sort of a musical kaleidoscope of America," said composer George Gershwin.
Kings & Queens of Country will marry traditional country music with contemporary dance. Choreographers David Hochoy and Cynthia Pratt will each create a world premiere for this concert, using their favorite iconic singers. Expect to hear a little Dolly, Johnny and many others.
