Koresh Dance Company’s Artistic Director Roni Koresh will present a world premiere of a new dance production inspired by Matisse’s famous painting “La Danse”. This production combines tender, joyful, passionate and humorous interpretation of Matisse’s three permutations of the painting starting with “Le bonheur de vivre” followed by the two versions of “La Danse”; the work will be danced to an original musical composition by John Levis and poetry by Karl Mullen.
THURSDAY AND FRIDAY SPECIAL EVENTS
On Thursday, April 25 and Friday April 26, the performance will be followed by a talk-back conversation with the artists, where audience members will be invited to ask Roni Koresh, the collaborators and the company dancers about the process of this new work.
