Armitage Gone! Dance

"A winner...what sticks in the memory is the personality of the dance and the dancers."--New York Times

The return of choreographer Karole Armitage to the U.S. dance scene is one of the most exhilarating developments in recent years.

$5 tickets for teens (ages 13-18) are available through High 5 Tickets to the Arts. Click here for details.

Strongly grounded in ballet and Balanchine, Armitage was a standout with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company before launching her own career as the incendiary "punk ballerina" of the 1980s' Downtown scene with landmark works like Drastic Classicism, her collaboration with massed guitar composer Rhys Chatham. She then spent many years working in Europe with major companies. Now she's reestablished herself in New York to concentrate on developing her own very impressive company and a new body of work that displays her stylish kinetic dynamism. As the Village Voice puts it, she's "pushing classicism's boundaries way into the stratosphere."

Presented by the Wexner Center in association with BalletMet.
