Gruppo Nanou‘s WE WANT MILES, IN A SILENT WAY—choreographed by Marco Valerio Amico and Rhuena Bracci—will premiere over the weekend as part of LaMaMa Moves.
By removing the trumpet from Miles Davis‘ albums Birth of the Cool (1949), Kind of Blue (1959), and Bitches Brew (1969), the dancemakers Amico, Bracci, and Marco Maretti “isolate and examine the work’s thrillingly elegant choreographic language, flights of improvisation, and composition methodology.”*
Friday and Saturday, April 26 and 27, at 8 pm.
Sunday, April 28, at 5 pm.
66 East 4th Street, New York City.
