Harkness Dance Festival Brings Exciting News


This year’s Harkness Dance Festival, wrote The New York Times, “brings exciting news: The slippery choreographer Doug Elkins has updated his 1990 dance ‘’Mo(or)town,’’ a play on Shakespeare’s “Othello” set to the music of Motown.”

This year’s 18th Harkness Dance Festival season, entitled STRIPPED/DRESSED, is being curated by choreographer Doug Varone, a former dancer with Lar Lubovitch, who opens the festival on February 17. Varone invited each artist to present a Stripped/Dressed evening. In the first half – “Stripped” – the artists show the skeleton and seeds of the full work, stripped of theatrical devices, as one might see it in a studio rehearsal. Then they present the work “Dressed” with costumes and lights in a more theatrical setting.

In addition to Doug Elkins Choreography, etc.: Mo(or)town Redux and Lar Lubovitch Dance Company, there will be performances by Peggy Baker Dance Project, Monica Bill Barnes & Company and Susan Marshall & Company.
