DOUBLE TAKE, is a historic collaboration between two nationally acclaimed Companies, who are proud to metaphorically join hands and begin our 20/21 season… together.
The hour-long virtual dance concert, comprised of dances from each company’s dynamic and varied repertoire, includes a world premiere for Ririe-Woodbury’s six dancers created by Artistic Director Daniel Charon titled Autumn Sun. This piece examines a sense of self and community in the telematic world of cyberspace. This new dance, featuring a series of duets, is set amongst the backdrop of a physically distanced world and questions what it means to connect both casually and intimately from afar.
Repertory Dance Theatre will present two buoyant works including an encore performance of Outdoors (from Shutdown) by Israeli choreographers Noa Zuk and Ohad Fishof. Described as a contemporary, tribalistic, pattern-piece, the movement is filled with quirky invention and laced with rhythmic humor. The second work, Reset—a world-premiere by former RDT dancer and winner of the 2020 REGALIA choreographic competition Justin Bass,—will joyfully mark the beginning of RDT’s 55th anniversary, its Emerald Season.
