WINTER DANCE 2019 AT REDCAT

Once again, the CalArts Winter Dance program celebrates the canon, this year with a program of works by Yvonne Rainer, Danielle Agami, Salia Sanou, and Wayne McGregor, staged either by the original choreographers or their close associates.

Rainer’s DIAGONAL—part of her 1963 dance Terrain—will be staged by dance artist and certified Rainer transmitter Sara Wookey, and McGregor’s FAR (2010) by former Company Wayne McGregor dancer Louis McMiller.

Sanou is staging his own work DU DESIR D’HORIZON (2016), and ONLY THEN—the Agami selection of excerpts—is staged by the choreographer and her Ate9 dancers Sarah Butler and Rebecah Goldstone.
