Periapsis Music and Dance presents


Oracle takes Periapsis Music and Dance through intrepid explorations in composer/choreographer relationships, questioning the boundaries between movement and character, between dance and theater, and between musician and dancer. The title work, by guest choreographer Norbert De La Cruz III and composer Harry Stafylakis, explores self-knowledge through the mythic idea of the all-seeing oracle.  Additional world premieres include Elle ne m’aime pas, by choreographer Hannah Weber and composer Jonathan Howard Katz, and conjuring MAEJHH, by guest choreographer Annalee Traylor and composer Hilary Purrington.  The program is rounded off with encaged, by choreographer Erin Dillon and composer Jonathan Howard Katz, plus guest works presented through the Periapsis Open Series.

Periapsis Open Series guests for May 11, 8 PM:
AL-D2D/T (Abdul Latif) with composer Ron Wasserman
Arch Ballet (Sheena Annalise) with composer Matthew AC Cohen

This program was supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Oracle was supported by New Music USA, made possible by annual program support and/or endowment gifts from Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust, New York State Council on the Arts, Helen F. Whitaker Fund, Aaron Copland Fund for Music. Music for conjuring MAEJHH commissioned by the Charles and Joan Gross Family Foundation.
