Doug Varone and Dancers

September 6 @ 8:00 pm - September 7 @ 10:00 pm

Award-winning choreographer and director Doug Varone works in dance, theater, opera, film, and fashion. Doug Varone and Dancers has been commissioned and presented to critical acclaim by leading international venues for over three decades. Commissions include the Paul Taylor Dance Company, Limón Company, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, and many other top companies around the world.

Inspired by Varone’s life-long obsession with the 1961 movie version of West Side Story, Doug Varone and Dancers will create a purely abstract dance work. Varone will strip the Bernstein orchestral score of its narrative connotations and reimagine the score. Varone has spent endless hours viewing the film and examining Thomas Stanford’s visceral film editing, using Jerome Robbin’s camera movements and angles as inspiration to craft new dance askew and off-kilter in form and vocabulary.
