Dances is a re-work of Dance at a Gathering, a ballet made by Jerome Robbins to the music of Frédéric Chopin. Our choreographer, James Loffler keeps the signature of Robbins’ work, by adopting the choreographies based on our dancers’ skills. We break the only rule in Jerome Robbins’ work: more than six dancers on stage will appear before the finale. In this piece, dancers just come and go, illustrating the mutability of things.

“THERE ARE NO STORIES TO ANY OF THE DANCES IN DANCES AT A GATHERING. THERE ARE NO PLOTS AND NO ROLES. THE DANCERS ARE THEMSELVES DANCING WITH EACH OTHER TO THAT MUSIC IN THAT PLACE.” [Jerome Robbins]
