Culturebot is really looking forward to this!
Baryshnikov Arts Center (BAC) is presenting Mikhail Baryshnikov, David Neumann, and Steve Paxton in Unrelated Solos, as part of May Nights in the Jerome Robbins Theater.
This extraordinary program features three solos performed by Mikhail Baryshnikov, including two New York premieres – Years Later (2006, rev. 2009), choreographed by Benjamin Millepied, set to music by Philip Glass; and Valse Fantasie (2009), choreographed by Alexei Ratmansky, set to music by Mikhail Glinka; as well as a work in progress by Susan Marshall. The program also includes the world premiere of a solo by Steve Paxton; and two works created and performed by David Neumann – Dose (1997) with music by Tom Waits, and tough, the tough (redux), with text by Will Eno, and sound design by Hal Hartley, Jane Shaw, DJ Mendel, and Neumann.
