Event Details

In celebration of AADT’S 30th Anniversary, critically-acclaimed Founding Artistic and Producing Director Andrea Ariel reunites with long-time collaborator and composer Graham Reynolds for an evening of dance and live music that fuses past repertoire with new work.

During REIMAGINE, audiences will experience the dynamic expanse of Ariel’s more than 32 years of choreography that “manifests a personae of poignant stillness, razor-edged frenzy, flowing grace, and of downright absurdity in expressing the dimensions of humanness,”(Austin Chronicle). The celebratory performance brings together acclaimed works from past repertoire with new works that are all choreographed to scores for piano and strings composed and performed by Graham Reynolds with Alexis Buffum on violin and Ilia De la Rosa on cello. REIMAGINE will be performed by the AADT’s ensemble members Luis Ordaz Gutierrez, Sade Jones, Clay Moore, Whitney O’Baugh, Ceci Proeger and Sunny (Jun) Shen.

Called “Evocative & enigmatic” (The Seattle Times) and his music “Beautiful and raucous…” (Vogue Magazine), Graham Reynolds began working with AADT in 1999 and over the span of 14 years, he has collaborated on 12 productions. The music for REIMAGINE includes pieces from Reynolds’ albums The Difference Engine: A Triple Concert, a collaboration with Tosca String Quartet and an early piece from Golden Arm Trio’s Tick-Tock Club. New works have been created to music originally composed by Reynolds for AADT’s shows Five Two Ten (2008) and The Geometry of Proximity (2011).

“Over all these years we were both developing our own work, and there are many threads of Graham’s compositions that had been part of my work during that time,” said Andrea Ariel. “I thought it would be interesting to reimagine older works while creating new ones to a selection of scores that resonated with these connections.”
