RIOULT Dance NY returns to the Miller Center for the Arts at Reading Area Community College in Reading to perform one of its newest programs “From Purple to Pärt” on Feb. 23 at 7:30 p.m.
Set to music by Deep Purple the iconic rock band of the 1970s and Danish composer Arvo Pärt, “From Purple to Pärt” pairs two of Pascal Rioult’s dances, Te Deum (1995) and Fire in the Sky (2017), that together make a powerful impact transporting the viewer to different times and places in Rioult’s artistic trajectory. As individual works, each piece resonates with the audience in distinctly personal ways. Explore Dance recommends “Don’t see the show alone; it will give you something to talk about.”
In addition to the performance, RIOULT Dance NY will be offering a workshop for area dancers on Friday, Feb. 22, 6:30 p.m. Please contact the Miller Center box office or visit the Miller Center website for more information and to register.
Tickets for “From Purple to Pärt” are for sale with reduced price for students. Purchase tickets by calling the Miller Center box office at 610-607-6270 or visiting millercenter.racc.edu.
