Leaping in... 

30th Anniversary Year

Buglisi Dance Theatre’s inventive programming illuminates the power and resilience of the human spirit. This season’s program is performed by a stunning, multi-generational cast of 15 dancers and features re-imaginings of iconic BDT repertoire, including Frida, a multi-media work that celebrates the heroic life of artist Frida Kahlo, a woman of extraordinary passions and extreme magnetism, with original cast Terese Capucilli and Christine Dakin, stars of contemporary dance, and internationally-acclaimed Taiwanese Guest Artist PeiJu Chien-Pott; Caravaggio Meets Hopper, a study in contrasts, isolation, and human relationships with Special Guests Elisa Clark and Chris Bloom; and, inspired by Dead Can Dance’s album The Serpent’s Egg and score for The Host of Seraphim, Buglisi’s World Premiere, A Walk Through Fire, on overcoming grief and loss as humanity finds itself on the precipice of all life changing, while recognizing the power of love.

When: Sat., January 5th, 8:30pm & Sun., January 6th, 4:30pm

Where: Peridance, Salvatore Capezio Theater, 126 East 13th Street

Choreographed by Virginie Mécène, UNUM, a trio for 3 men, explores the idea that mankind comes from the same source of energy. UNUM (one in Latin) is a collaboration between Mécène and composer Jacopo Baboni Schilingi that utilizes groundbreaking medical technology to measure the breath. The dancer’s breath is translated into sound as they move through the choreography. Unconsciously, we are One.
