BMDC 25th Opener Live from the Kennedy Center ( Free – Virtual)
May 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Bowen McCauley Dance Company kicks-off its Silver Anniversary season with it’s rescheduled March 2020 performances at the Kennedy Center with the reprise of “Dances of the Yogurt Maker,” Choreography by Lucy Bowen McCauley with music by Turkish Composer Erberk Eryilmaz. The first-ever collaboration between these two award-winning artists was commissioned by the Fairfax Symphony Orchestra (March 2019).
Lucy Bowen McCauley will also premiere a new work, “Trois Rêves” created for the COVID socially distanced stage performance, set to Maurice Ravel’s Gaspard de la Nuit, featuring a live piano solo by Nikola Paskalov. The new piece is set on eight Company dancers and highlights the graceful sweeping movements that only a Ravel composition could deliver.
The evening will begin with a pre-show discussion with Lucy Bowen McCauley and artists sharing their insights and thoughts on the evening’s performance. The virtual performance will follow at 7:30 p.m.
This performance is free. We thank our March 2020 performance sponsors.
