Big Boys Don’t Do That

By Effie Bowen

With Marian Ekweogwu, Zari Esaian, Nicholas Jackson, Jen Rosenblit

Music by Kate Bush, hollywaxwing, NPR


Choreography and dance: Salva Sanchis

Music: György Ligeti, John Cage, Luciano Berio, Jo Kondo and Keiko Harada

Salva will dance an excerpt from his solo Angle (2012). It is set to short piano solo pieces by György Ligeti, John Cage, Luciano Berio, Jo Kondo and Keiko Harada, which normally are performed live by pianist Yutaka Oya. Tonight Salva will use recorded music. Angle is a dance piece about the perception of dance. Its title refers specifically to the way we look at dance. As we all know, dance, just like music, doesn’t stand alone. It needs an audience to fulfill its purpose, and the audience brings in as much baggage as the artist to that relation.
