BRIEF ENCOUNTERS

Opus Number:  131
Music:  Claude Debussy
Costumes:  Santo Loquasto
Lighting:  James F. Ingalls
Date First Performed:  November 6, 2009
Notes:  A dance about people more concerned with momentary connections than ongoing relationships. Men and women converge at a secret trysting place in the dead of night – not for romance, but to satisfy their pure animal instincts.

“The dancers, beautifully adult and near naked in trim black underwear, passed through transient scenes of sexual desire, emotional perplexity and more… Every emotion and meeting seems young, pristine, mysterious.” — Alastair Macaulay, New York Times
