This diverse program features four exciting works by Artistic Director Igal Perry, Adam Barruch, and Norbert De La Cruz III.
Princess Grace Award-winning choreographer Norbert De La Cruz III collaborates with composer Nathan Prillaman for this world premiere of his work, Face to Face.
Acclaimed choreographer Adam Barruch restages his 2011 duet, Folie a Deux. Folie a Deux is an exploration into the interior landscapes of two people whose acts of intimacy are the fantasy that thinly veils a greater discord. Folie a Deux (a French term that literally translates as "a madness shared by two") is a psychiatric syndrome in which symptoms of a delusional belief are transmitted from one individual to another.
The company will perform Marlena Wolfe's YOUnite (2017), a dive into masculinity, femininity and their intersection points. YOUnite is visceral, physical, and is accompanied by powerful music by Middle Eastern-French songwriter Bachar Mar-Khalifac and Armand Amar.
Perry is also restaging excerpts from Dia-Mono-Logues. The full-length work premiered in 2017, with an original score and text by Israeli composer Ofer Bashan. Dia-Mono-Logues explores the ways people subconsciously project their prejudices and preconceived notions onto others, affecting every interaction and relationship. The work speaks to bridging cultural differences, and it stems from Perry's own experience emigrating from Israel in the turbulent 1970s.
