COUNTERSWARM

Opus Number:  89
Music:  György Ligeti
Costumes:  Santo Loquasto
Lighting:  Jennifer Tipton
Date First Performed:  April 28, 1988
Notes:  “Entomological eroticism… as essay in movement invention. In this intriguing and insistent whirlpool of dance…the familiar had been made to look strange, the commonplace transformed into a glistening fantasy. If you think a cockroach can’t look exotic, you obviously haven’t seen Counterswarm.” – Anna Kisselgoff, New York Times
