Three standout works, one 'Summer Sampler'
The piece opened with Yayoi Kambara's expansively exploring solo set to a voice-over by Karen Zukor, who restored the book on Euclid's Elements of Geometry and to whom the piece is dedicated. The dancers stepped in to give us choreographic images of Euclid's concepts, forming themselves into squares, triangles, diagonals, and parallels. This was living geometry that moved through its patterns with the inevitability and serendipity of a kaleidoscope.
When Kambara's single, huge ronds de jambe smudged Maggie Stack's carefully "drawn" chalk lines, the dance exploded into a series of highly individualized duets: lush and sensuous for Stack and Corey Brady; volatile and athletic for Adams and Kambara; and, particularly intriguing, one for Zivolich and Smith in which he seemed blind to her pleading. The number two was of primary importance to Euclid; it also is for dance. And what better way to explore its ramifications than to Schubert compositions.
