Episode 31

World premiere 14 December 2011, Peter Jay Sharp theatre, NYC.

Episode 31 was created for The Senior Graduation Class at The Juilliard School, 2011 in New York City. It is a large group piece consisting of a number of fast paced scenes created by the dancers.

From an up beat drumming sequence to a quiet comment on beauty by Eric Satie, this piece is a showcase for the young enthusiastic energy from these very athletic dancers. When we created this piece we also experimented with dance in public locations: 20 dancers suddenly bursted out dancing, in the subways, streets, squares and parks of New York City.

The piece premiered at the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre and also toured to the Edinburgh Festival in 2012 and will be performed by the Joffrey Ballet in Chicago August 2013.
