Dancers to perform, discuss work, Oct. 25
Posted October 18, 2001; 12:33 a.m.
The Program in Theater and Dance will present an informal performance and discussion of Sara Hook Dances at 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25, in the Hagan Dance Studio, 185 Nassau St.
Hook, a faculty member at the University of Illinois and former soloist with Nikolais Louis Dance, has been choreographing for more than a decade. She founded Sara Hook Dances in 1997, and the group currently maintains an active schedule of performances and residencies nationally. Her work is distinguished by an optimistic devotion to humanism and an extreme physicality. Athletic lurches and detailed gestures compete with each other to create a movement language that seems inevitable yet iconoclastic.
The program will feature repertory, including some solo pieces that Hook has recently reset and reworked on her current company members, as well as new works in progress.
