Although we’re on late-summer hiatus from ballet season here in NYC, SLSG favorite Marcelo Gomes will be performing at the Joyce Theater on August 15th, with the Brazilian modern dance company, Cisne Negro (which means Black Swan in Portuguese). I’ve never seen this company before, but of course am now intrigued. They’re at the Joyce from August 15-20, but Marcelo is only dancing on opening night. He’s to dance a solo, called Paganini, which he choreographed himself but on a female dancer from La Scala Ballet. He’s now re-set the piece on himself. It’s set to violin music, which will be played live by Charles Yang. Go here for more info on the rest of the program.
Here’s a short video clip of the company:
