RIOULT’S DEEP PURPLE

There’s a glam-rock sock hop at the Joyce this weekend, courtesy of choreographer/entrepreneur Pascal Rioult and his driving company Rioult Dance, performing the world premiere of Rioult’s FIRE IN THE SKY. Jere Hunt plays an Iggy-Ziggy rock god, mesmerizing his band of followers with animal grace in painted-on, silver-and-black, zebra-striped jeans—designed by Patricia Field and David Dalrymple, who took a bow during the enthusiastic curtain calls on opening night.

The choreography, the costumes, and the attitude are pure androgynous Seventies, but rather than go over the top with a Velvet Goldmine score, Rioult wisely chose to set this new piece to the prole boogie of Deep Purple. “Smoke on the Water,” “Child in Time,” “Lazy,” and “Highway Star” set the scene for an extended workout by this uniformly excellent troupe. Sabatino A. Verlezza—all energy, charisma, athleticism, and command of precise form—is a particular standout.

A revisited TE DEUM, a Rioult piece from 1995, opens the evening.

RIOULT DANCE—TE DEUM and FIRE IN THE SKY, nightly through June 4.

PARSONS DANCE AT THE JOYCE

Parsons Dance will present two world premieres during its May 2017 engagement at the Joyce Theater in Chelsea.

DANIEL (2017), choreographed by Omar Román De Jesús, which “explores the youthful and uninhibited pursuit of joy,” was inspired by the choreographer’s work with dancers on the autism spectrum.*

UP END (2017), choreographed by Ephrat “Bounce” Asherie and company founder David Parsons, features a commissioned score by Marty Beller. UP END is Parson Dance’s first exploration of hip–hop and street dance. (Both choreographers will perform their dances with the company.)

Program A also includes audience favorite CAUGHT (1982), HAND DANCE, and SWING SHIFT (both 2003). Program B brings back SLEEP STUDY (1987), and IN THE END (2003). All by Parsons.

 

PARSONS DANCE, through May 28.
