The Company brings a revival of Varone classics; Boats Leaving and Lux, plus, Nocturne(s), a solo work created and performed by Varone. Nocturne(s) pairs a new solo which premiered this summer at Jacob’s Pillow (Nocturne in E. Minor, Opus 72 #1) with another solo created 30 years earlier in 1987, Nocturne in D Flat Major, Opus 27 #2. The company will also perform the duet folded from in the shelter of the fold, a cycle of episodic, stand-alone vignettes that explore the many forms of faith and belief, as well as the acts of coping, realization, choice and the expectations attached to it. The vignette folded, set to music by Julia Wolfe, examines the fragile and precarious nature of intimacy.
