Hannah Kahn Dance Company: Juxtaposition and Other Dances
June 22 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
One event on June 23, 2019 at 4:00pm
The company’s recent performances in NYC were described by reviewer Mindy Aloff as “unique in quality… achieving the effect that the music and the dance had been born together”. For these shows the dancers will bring to fruition seven works including a premiere set to music of Denver’s own Chappell Kingsland, professor at the Lamont School of Music. The program will also include Kahn’s 2018 work “Juxtaposition”, set to music of Daniel Kellogg, professor at CU/Boulder.
Kahn is working with the dancers to recreate dances from the last few decades: Concerto (1993), “Go for Broke” (1988), “Constellations” (2001), Over Under Around and Through (2006) and Complete the Circuit (2009). Kahn works with her original notes and videos of the original cast to bring the material back to life. Small changes and improvements are incorporated as the dancers make the movement material their own, and the old dances are reborn.
