Spring Concert with company premiere of Sokolow’s ROOMS
Dance Place
3225 8th Street NE
May 1 at 8pm, May 2 at 7pm

Choreographed in 1955, Sokolow premiered Rooms, a powerful portrayal of the terrifying loneliness that afflicts even people living in the closest proximity to each other. Lorry May, former principal with the Sokolow Dance Company will be in residence with us in April restaging this modern dance classic with Dance Place. 2010 is Anna Sokolow’s 100th birth centennial and Dakshina kicked of the partnership with the Sokolow Foundation by performing her signature piece DREAMS in Dhaka, Bangladesh on January 3rd to widespread critical acclaim. Dakshina’s reconstruction is made possible by a prestigious American Masterpieces grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Dakshina will be performing several Bharata Natyam dances to celebrate Asian Pacific Heritage Month and will also include an excerpt from the company’s signature syncretic piece Bell Song. In Bell Song, Singh used his Bharata Natyam training along with Modern Dance for a new interpretation of the classics.

Last year’s show was sold out on both nights, so get your tickets early by visiting danceplace.org.
