    SOKOLOW NOW! The Anna Sokolow Contemporary Dance Company presents their annual spring concert.

    Sokolow Now! is the only company exclusively performing the repertory of the celebrated choreographer Anna Sokolow. Their passion for the work is evident in their stunning, unparalleled theatrical stagings of Sokolow’s original choreograph.

    Under the artistic of direction of Lorry May, the company performs three internationally acclaimed dances that express the depth and diversity of Sokolow’s work. The program opens with the beautifully conceived and executed "Lyric Suite", choreographed in 1953 to Alban Berg’s score of the same name. "Lyric Suite" was a major landmark in Sokolow’s choreographic career, establishing her place as a major modern dance choreographer.

    The second work of the evening, "A Short Lecture and Demonstration on the Evolution of Ragtime" choreographed in 1952, is a light-hearted romp through the social dances of the 1920’s and 30’s. This dance is set to the same music and text that Ferdinand Joseph LaMothe (stage name Jelly Roll Morton) used for his own lectures on the evolution of ragtime.

    Completing the program is Sokolow’s "Dreams", choreographed in 1961 to a musical collage by composers Teo Macero, Anton Webern and J.S. Bach. "Dreams", Sokolow’s signature work, is her searing statement about man’s inhumanity to man.

    Members of The Anna Sokolow Contemporary Dance Company, performing in the 2011 annual spring concert, are Suellen Haag, Whitney Hoke, Nicola Iervasi, Mark Kranz, Kirsten McKinney, Todd Lindamood, Courtney Peix, Mariah Steel, Jaclyn Thompson, and Josef Woodson.

    Sokolow Now! is the only company exclusively performing the repertory of the celebrated choreographer Anna Sokolow. Their passion for the work is evident in their stunning, unparalleled theatrical stagings of Sokolow’s original choreography.
