Kyle Artlett, Douglas Boyce, Alan Theisen

counter)induction presents musical chiaroscuro, sights and sounds of action and stillness. Davidovsky's "Duo Capriccioso" is an intricate dialectical tango in which performers evade and embrace, kick and embrace. Kyle Bartlett's new work, 'Twitch,' moves through the discontinuous and powerful motions of the mosh pit and the boxing ring. Douglas Boyce's new Etude explores the tension of sudden stops and explosive acceleration. Stravinsky's masterwork "A Soldier's Tale' marches and dances, while Alan Theisen's "Ondes et Ombres" meditates in shadows.
