Lydia Johnson Dance NY Season 2022

Lydia Johnson Dance (LJD) is happy to announce its New York Season 2022, from September 15-17, at New York Stay Arts, with an ensemble of 10 in three premieres by Lydia Johnson, all created all through the pandemic between shut-downs and Covid outbreaks. The Firm welcomes the return of Craig Corridor, former soloist and present Ballet Grasp of New York Metropolis Ballet, as visitor artist in Johnson’s new Time…and once more.

Johnson will premiere Time…and once more, created for Corridor and LJD principal Laura Di Orio. Set to jazz requirements performed by Oscar Peterson, the duet is full of magnificence and romance, seen fairly wistfully by means of the present post-pandemic temper.

For Eli (premiere) was commissioned by visible artist Laura Lou Levy as a memorial to her late son Eli, and is danced to music by Chopin that Eli performed earlier than his premature demise. The work has no clear plot, however fairly alludes to components in Eli’s life and household.

Glide Path (premiere) is one in all Johnson’s extra summary items. Creating a way of time passing and of communities and relationships shifting, the piece is anchored within the music of the adventurous string quartet ETHEL.

The Firm will reprise Johnson’s standard 2018 Undercurrent, a set ending with a vibrant group dance harking back to village folks dance. As in all of her items, Johnson, lauded for her distinctive musicality, hyperlinks her motion to the music of one in all her most inspiring composers, Henryk Gorecki.

Lydia Johnson Dance will current its NYC Season 2022 at New York Stay Arts from September 15-17. For tickets and extra info, go to newyorklivearts.org/occasion/lydia-johnson-dance-2022.
