"Perhaps the most adept and courageous choreographer in mainstream modern dance today..."
About This Show
The sensual, articulate, and exquisitely musical work of acclaimed modern choreographer and former Martha Graham principal dancer Pascal Rioult comes to Bailey Hall with his company, RIOULT Dance NY. This electric program features Rioult's brilliantly colored and gorgeously nuanced Dream Suite, the riveting tour de force Wien, and the newly-premiered Fire in the Sky inspired by club dancing from Rioult's youth and the music of Deep Purple, the famed British rock band whose sound flourished through the '70s and '80s. Founded in 1994, the daring and imaginative RIOULT Dance NY company continues to deliver "powerful, emotionally moving" (Durham Herald Sun) performances and has received accolades from around the world. "Musically astute, visually arresting and kinetically exciting...Rioult and company are undeniable champs of modern dance" (The Daily Gazette, Schenectady).View the Performer's Website
