Wally Cardona / WC4+

"...one of the most adventurous choreographers of his generation, a master of passionate abstract dances..."
—Brooklyn Magazine

Last at BAM with the Bessie Award-winning  Everywhere (2005 Next Wave Festival), Wally Cardona and company return with  Really Real, a delicately calibrated exploration of our species. Balancing composer Phil Kline's affecting music with Cardona's architecturally exacting movements, his elegant and uncompromising troupe-accompanied by the Brooklyn Youth Chorus-mines the hard-wired forces that make us who we are.

As always with Cardona, each new dance builds subtly on the last; in  Really Real, he hones in on the nuances of the individual caught in the collective. Never overt in his choreography, he transforms inventive spatial juxtapositions and seemingly simple actions into other-worldly expressions of what it means to be human.

Choreographed and directed by Wally Cardona
Original music by Phil Kline
Lighting design by Roderick Murray 
Live music performed by Brooklyn Youth Chorus
