Featured will be Dark Elegies by Antony Tudor, one of the 20th century’s most renowned ballet choreographers, set to Gustav Mahler’s Song Cycle Kindertotenlieder (Songs on the Death of Children); the work, considered one of Tudor’s greatest, expresses the raw emotion of a tight-knit community faced with the inexplicable loss of its beloved children. Also highlighted will be Cathy Young’s witty and playful Zero Cool, a jazz work set to Duke Ellington’s evocative Latin American Suite and Far East Suite. The piece uses intricate patterns and highly stylized movement to reference inspirations as varied as the angular design ethos of the 1960s, the choreography of jazz dance giant Jack Cole, and 1960s social dances such as the Twist, the Pony and the Cha-Cha. In addition, Tony-nominated dancer and choreographer John Selya, who joined the Meadows Division of Dance as an artist-in-residence this fall, will create a new solo work for a female dancer. Rounding out the concert is Pick-Up, a new work by alumnus Joshua L. Peugh, founder of Dark Circles Contemporary Dance, blending gesture, social dance, ballet and contemporary modern movement.
