“Intelligent and inventive dancemaking”
—Dance Magazine

Dušan Týnek Dance Theatre celebrates its 10th anniversary with a program that includes two world premieres, Stereopsis and Romanesco Suite, and one acclaimed repertory work Base Pairs (2010).

Choreographer Dušan Týnek (called by The New York Times “an undoubted talent, a choreographer who seems fascinated by movement itself and the strange, subtle ways in which it communicates strange, subtle things”) has been widely acclaimed for his striking blend of theatricality and musicality. In this program, he relies less on traditional musical instruments to explore rhythms—percussive sounds, mating calls of cicadas, and amplified footfall, breathing, and speech emanating from the dancers themselves—orchestrated in collaboration with sound designer Dave Ruder.

The program’s three compelling dances each freshly examine the confluence of science and mythology. Stereopsis explores depth perception and binocular disparity and is layered with an original text by Cynthia Polutanovich referencing the cyclopes in Homer’s OdysseyRomanesco Suite in inspired by the theory of fractals and geometric shapes that occur in nature. Base Pairs(2010) is inspired by human origin and evolution—including creation theories and the role of DNA—accompanied by a recording of dance legend Lucinda Childs reading a text by Polutanovich.

 

This event is presented by Dušan Týnek Dance Theatre. Regular BAM house and ticketing policies may not apply.
