In its 25th year, Koresh Dance Company presents Classic KORESH, a selection of favorites drawn from the company’s quarter century of innovative work. These repertoire classics include interpretations of Classical compositions by Bach, Beethoven, and Ravel, from the rolling strains of “Moonlight Sonata” to the trumpeting processions of “Bolero.” Moments of tenderness and grace alternate with humor and brash force on this tour of highlights drawn from over 60 existing works by Artistic Director Ronen Koresh.
As a unique feature of the anniversary program, Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23 will feature in a newly commissioned work, “23: Deconstructing Mozart,” a collaborative initiative driven by Koresh and multi-media artist Paul Miller, a.k.a. DJ Spooky. Together, they will produce “23: Deconstructing Mozart,” which will premiere in Philadelphia in March 2016 as part of an evening-length work on the theme of prime numbers. In “23,” a twist on the classical, Miller will disarticulate and rebuild portions of Mozart’s concerto, creating new sounds and layers to bring the classic into the present. To this new music, Koresh will combine the industrial and the lyrical to produce a potent remix of his precise, athletic style.
“If you like your dancing hard, fast and intense, the Koresh Dance Company is for you. … liquidly sensual …, clean, expressive gestures … imparting a richness of movement to the events on stage. There’s a sheer physical joy to this allegrismo execution.” – Philadelphia Inquirer
“Earthy, folk-dancey, emotionally direct, physically intense, and ostentatiously eccentric”
– The New Yorker
