Ailey/Fordham B.F.A. Senior Concert
Tue Mar 27 2007
The Ailey School's B.F.A. Senior Concert—a last-minute addition to this weekend's dance festivities—might be worth checking out. The show features new works by Christopher Huggins and Helen Pickett, as well as Nacho Duato's Rassemblement, marking the first time that students will perform this work. Basically, I think that Duato is overrated. But the program also features another first, which will no doubt turn out to be gold: Yuriko is setting Martha Graham's powerful "Steps in the Street" from Chronicle on the Ailey students. Apparently, it's the first time students from the Ailey School will perform a Graham work.
Here are the details:
Saturday 31 at 3 and 7pm: The Ailey Citigroup Theater, 405 W 55th St at Ninth Ave (212-405-9144). Tickets are $10 and $20.
