Ligeti Essays (2005) Choreography: Karole Armitage Music: György Ligeti Set: David Salle Costumes: Peter Speliopoulos Lighting: Clifton Taylor
Ligeti Essays, by choreographer Karole Armitage to songs by György Ligeti, is a dance sculpted on a stark black and white stage bringing to mind an ice storm, beautiful and unsettling. The songs, structured with haiku like compression, reveal many different states of mind from the sublime to the sarcastic. The dancers appear in duets, solos, and quartets, snatching thought from the air, to capture arresting psychological images.
