Buraczeski’s choreography has traced a clear and deep investigation of jazz - its sources and ongoing evolution - with keen attention paid to the rich lineage of individual performers and movement makers.

Three contemporary works highlight the Fall Dance Concert. With its circular stage space, curving ramps and central spire, Associate Professor Christopher Dolder’s new version of Bolero is equal parts architectural art and bio-mechanical physics experiment. The interactive set and video-projected imagery compel the dancers to accelerate, ascend and literally vault into space in feats of virtuosic toroidal motion.

The Spring Dance Concert features a diverse mix of modern, jazz and ballet works. Paul Taylor’s masterwork Mercuric Tidings, described by New York Times dance critic Anna Kisselgoff as “a dance that seemingly bursts into song,” is set to symphonic music by Schubert. Alternately physically propulsive and elegantly introspective, it is one of Taylor’s most demanding, sumptuous and poetic creations. Valse-Fantaisie, a whirlwind dance for a lead couple and four additional women, was choreographed by George Balanchine for New York City Ballet in 1967.
