About This Event
Dance NOW! Miami?s Program III will feature a restaging of Joffrey Ballet?s boundary-breaking work, ?The Relativity of Icarus,? and the world premiere of Dance NOW!?s own new piece, ?Gli Altri/The Others.? The first features choreography by Gerald Arpino, and is an athletic male duet from 1974 that uses the Daedalus and Icarus myths to express the tortured relationship between sons and fathers, with homoerotic overtones that were controversial for its time. The second, choreographed by Artistic Directors Hannah Baumgarten and Diego Salterini, marries filmmaker Federico Fellini?s cinematic imagery with confessional storytelling to create unique symbolism. This performance contains adult contents and themes.
