RIOULT Dance NY at Manhattan School of Music
7:30 – 9PM
RIOULT Dance NY, a leading American modern dance company with a classic sensibility, will perform the Dance to Contemporary Composers Series with Tactus on January 22, 2015 at 7:30pm at the Manhattan School of Music’s Borden Auditorium, 120 Claremont Avenue, NYC. Tickets are $12 ($7 for students/seniors) and are available online at http://www.msmnyc.edu/Concertgoer/Box-Office, via phone at (917) 493-4428, or at the box office one hour prior to curtain.
In the Dance to Contemporary Composers Series, RIOULT Dance NY commissions new music, collaborates with American composers, and presents dance performance with live music. Consecutive world premieres from 2011-2013 were created through this series, including On Distant Shores a 2011 collaboration with composer Aaron J. Kernis, The Violet Hour a 2012 collaboration with composer Joan Tower, and Iphigenia a 2013 collaboration with composer Michael Torke. These dances reflect Pascal Rioult’s support for contemporary classical composers, as well as literary interests in poetry and mythology.
