This Saturday and Sunday, October 29 and 30, the New York Theatre Ballet will give two public performances as the culmination of a three-week residency that it’s finishing up with grant aid from the Dance Program at the New York State Council on the Arts. Widely seen as the preeminent chamber ballet company in the nation these days, the 33-year-old company – which performs regularly at Jacob’s Pillow and New York’s City Center, along with annual international tours – will perform a program including the pas de trois Trio con Brio, choreographed by Anthony Tudor; José Limón’s The Moor’s Pavane, based on the tragedy of Shakespeare’s Othello; and Richard Alston’s A Rugged Flourish, danced to Copeland’s Piano Variations. There will also be a premiere for Kinderszonen, choreographed by Antonia Franceschi to a new score by Allen Shawn.
Performances take place Saturday, October 29 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, October 30 at 2:30 p.m. The Kaatsbaan International Dance Center is located at 120 Broadway in Tivoli, just off Route 9 north of Bard College. For further information call (845) 757-5106 or visit www.kaatsbaan.org.
