Anna Sokolow

The Sokolow Theatre Dance Ensemble, under the guidance of Artistic Director Jim May continues its Sound of Sokolow series with the reconstruction of Lyric Suite, choreographed by Anna Sokolow in 1953 with music by Alban Berg.

Lyric Suite will be shown Dec. 6th – 9th at the newly renovated 14th Street Y. The program will also consist of Ms. Sokolow’s Evolution of Ragtime, choreographed in 1952 to the music of Ferdinand (Jelly Roll) Morton along with Jim May’s 1995 duet Empty Nest, music by David Lang.

Louis Horst, after seeing Lyric Suite expressed….“It is one of the finest examples of lyric theater dance seen in many a season….it speaks in abstract and stark simplicity, translating the qualitative moods of the music into penetrating and evocative movement designs. Superbly choreographed and thoroughly integrated, its beauty has a direct appeal to kinesthetic response.” Louis Horst, Dance Observer 1954
