    Lar Lubovitch Dance Company

    Presented by at Ted Shawn Theatre

    July 20 - July 24, 2011


    Lar Lubovitch  Dance Company

    Lar Lubovitch has been hailed by The New York Times as "one of the ten best choreographers in the world," and his company has been called a "national treasure" by Variety. Lubovitch is a master of musicality; for more than 40 years his work has captivated audiences with luxurious movement and lyricism.

    This program features two new works from 2010 including Coltrane's Favorite Things which reimagines the choreographic possibilities of jazz music, inspired by and danced to John Coltrane's 1963 "Live in Copenhagen" interpretation of Richard Rodgers' "My Favorite Things" from The Sound of Music. The Legend of Ten, also from 2010, is a dramatic work danced to the first and fourth movements of Brahms' "Quintet in F Minor (Op. 34)," recorded by Glenn Gould and the Montréal String Quartet.

    Lar Lubovitch's North Star was one of the first contemporary concert dances set to music by Philip Glass. North Star was first performed in 1978, and in this revival dancers command the stage with grace and boundless energy, delivering a "trance-inducing aesthetic at its purest and most satisfying" (Boston Globe).
