In Violet Kid, Hofesh Shechter examines man's struggle for harmony within a complex and sometimes horrifying universe. In constant shifts between exhilarating charges and contradictory retreats, victims, and aggressors, a glimpse into the essence of existence emerges. Ten Duets on a Theme of Rescue by Crystal Pite features dramatic cinematic lighting through which pairs of dancers sweep in and out, playing either the rescued or the rescuer in mesmerizing sequences. Rounding out the evening is a world premiere by Israeli choreographer, Emanuel Gat. Ida ? is a playful contemplation on the nature of human relations. Through continuous shifts and tampering with both visual and aural perceptions, the work explores and questions group behaviors and the navigation of individuals within them.
