Ballet-inspired movement, theatrical inspiration, beautiful music and athletic grace are all ingredients in the Peridance Contemporary Dance Company’s performance coming to Staller Center on Saturday, November 17, at 8 pm.
Peridance features dancers from all over the world creating a multi-cultural troupe with dancers from the U.S., Italy, Brazil, Korea, Canada and Israel. On the program is “Folie a Deux,” a French term that literally translates as “a madness shared by two,” choreographed by Adam Barruch. “Dia-Mono-Logues” by Igal Perry speaks to bridging cultural differences stemming from Artistic Director Perry’s own experience emigrating from Israel to the U.S. in the turbulent 1970s.
The skill, energy and enthusiasm of Peridance promises to entertain newcomers to dance as well as seasoned dance enthusiasts. Igal Perry has choreographed over 50 works with performances at Brooklyn Academy of Music, The Joyce Theater and City Center. He serves as guest faculty/choreographer at the Jacob’s Pillow Festival, The Ailey School, Marymount Manhattan College and The Juilliard School. Peridance Contemporary Dance Company is based in New York City where the Peridance Capezio Center is located.
