About the Program

Witness two virtuosic premieres with live music!

The multi-cultural Buglisi Dance Theatre is hailed for its magnificent dancers and visually stunning theatricality, inspired by art literature and heroic archetypes.  A powerful observer of humanity, Buglisi captivates us in Program A with the romance and comedic absurdities of life in the provocative trilogy "Women Who Dare” comprised of the world premiere Wild Mannequins & Wing Walkers with a cutting edge set by Jack Mehler in collaboration with visionary mannequin maker Ralph Pucci, original score to keyboard, laptop and voice by composers Wynne Bennett and Milica Paranosic, and costumes designs by A.Christina Giannini; the surreal Frida; and Suspended Women, Buglisi's signature masterpiece with musical interpolations by Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR); also on the program is the NYC Premiere of Interplay No. 9-1 to Bach, Chopin and Scriabin performed live on piano.  Program B highlights the erotically-charged Threshold to the music of Arvo Pärt.
