Director: Louise Reichlin
Louise Reichlin & Dancers burst into the public eye in 1979 with their first performance at the Anson Ford Theatre when “Reichlin created a sensation with The Tennis Dances” (Dance News). Over the years she has continued to examine our society from its most primitive nature to the emergence of the information age with The E-mail Dances in 1996. Through multiple performances for the 23rd Olympiad, a summer series at the LA Zoo, touring the US and Mexico Reichlin has consistently and continually created probing and provocative” works (Dance Magazine) enjoyed by all ages. Her work illuminates life with reviews like “Before a triumphant finale, a world and its history have passed before our eyes, thanks to Louise Reichlin.” (Los Angeles Times). This year the company celebrated its 35th anniversary.
We will be doing a suite from a work commissioned by performance artist Linda J. Albertano called SEVERAL SELF-GESTAPOS…a siren-song from the afterlife. The dances are about a poet, who on going into into his seventieth decade and thinking about dying, is approached by 4 apparitions: a ballerina clown, a flamenco dancer of death, Marilyn Monroe, and an exotic middle eastern dancer. Sound score is by Albertano, and choreography by Reichlin. This will be performed by Coree McKee, Elizabeth Poinsette, Linnea Snyderman, Kirby Harrell, Kistina Pressler, and Roman Bykov.
Joining them in a new dance, working title INVASION by Reichlin is company member Glenn Rodriguez.
