Last chance to see "New Work for Goldberg Variations" by Pam Tanowitz Dance and pianist Simone Dinnerstein before it leaves the region.
Wednesday, November 15, 8 p.m.
Williams Center for the Arts
Lafayette College / Easton, Pa.
In "New Work for Goldberg Variations," pianist Simone Dinnerstein brings her nuanced understanding of J.S. Bach’s ambitious keyboard series together with rule-breaking choreographer Pam Tanowitz’s witty and unflinchingly post-modern abstractions of classical and popular dance forms. Deconstructing formal and traditional movement vocabularies, "New Work for Goldberg Variations" converses with Bach’s iconic score in a delightful interplay of rhythm, style, and idiosyncrasy, demonstrating the rich emotional world lying beneath the poised surface of the Goldbergs’ musical architecture. Dinnerstein, whose chart-topping recording of the Bach is the definitive version of her generation, performs the demanding score live. The New York Times calls NW for GV "a rare achievement."
