In October 2018, the Fall for Dance festival at the New York City Center will include performances by two Dutch dance companies: NDT 2 and Introdans. NDT 2 will perform "Midnight Raga" by Marco Goecke, whilst Introdans will perform "Canto Ostinato" on a choreography by Lucinda Childs. Tickets will go on sale to the general public on September 9th, at 11 am.
Goecke combines a deep midnight blue with his piece "Midnight Raga," the title of which hearkens back to classical Indian music. For this piece, the music by Ravi Shankar was the starting point without ever letting Goecke’s idiosyncratic, nervous language of movement resort to elements of Indian dance at all.
"Canto Ostinato" is one of the recent major successes in the Introdans repertoire. This is the second choreography made by Lucinda Childs, one of the "grand old ladies" of American modern dance, especially for Introdans, in this case at the start of 2015. In Childs' characteristic mathematical – or as she herself says 'uncompromising' – style, two pairs dance to the repetitive, hypnotizing music of the same name by Simeon ten Holt: one moment calmly striding, the next bursting into powerful dance salvos. "Simple, pure and quite wonderful", "leaves you wishing for much more", said the dance critics.
