Keigwin + Company Fri, 8/3
Home > Bates Dance Festival 2012 > Keigwin + Company Fri, 8/3
|The centerpiece of the Bates Dance Festival's 30th-anniversary season is the return of
festival alum Larry Keigwin and his champion dancers, Keigwin + Company, returning with a
dynamic evening of Maine premieres. Performances take place at 8 p.m. Thursday and Friday,
Aug. 2 and 3 in Schaeffer Theatre.
In addition, a special gala performance takes place at 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 4, followed
by an anniversary party with the artists.
Keigwin + Company will present five Maine premieres including a new male quartet, "Contact Sport"; "Natural Selection"; "Triptych"; and "Trio," with music by Adam Crystal.
His work is witty, kinetic and musically responsive, mixing the stretched lines of ballet with the weighted, blunt quality of contemporary dance and often with everyday gestures and pop-culture references. It's a blend that's accessible yet ambitious, and that -- together with his openness to theatrical possibilities and lack of snobbishness about his art -- has won him many fans in the dance world.
