RIOULT Dance NY, a leading American modern dance company with a classic sensibility, will perform on Wednesday, November 5, 2014 at 7:30pm at the University of Mississippi’s Ford Center for the Performing Arts at 351 University Avenue, University, MS 38677. Tickets are $30 and are available at http://www.fordcenter.org/event/rioult-dance-ny/. Partially funded through the South Arts Dance Touring Initiative this multi-day residency will include master classes at Ole Miss and Lafayette High School, and a special event at the Pat Lamar Park amphitheater, among others.
The evening’s performance will feature four dances from Rioult’s vast and varied repertory including Views of the Fleeting World, Wien, On Distant Shores, and Bolero. Views of the Fleeting World is inspired by the ancient woodblock prints of Japanese master Hiroshige and the ingenious structure of J. S. Bach’s “The Art of Fugue.” It explores the ephemeral quality of living things and the eternal cycle of life. Wien, a darkly fascinating take on Ravel and the Viennese Waltz, is the very image of social refinement which becomes the symbol of social disarray and decay. In On Distant Shores… a redemption fantasy Pascal Rioult sets out to redeem Helen of Troy whom he contends was brought to Troy against her will. And the program closes with Rioult’s Bolero, a bold and distinctive interpretation of Ravel’s famous score -- a riveting tour de force.
