PERFORMANCE / BOSTON DEBUT
World Music / CRASHarts Presents
ANNA MYER and DANCERS
HOOP SUITE and the Boston debut of HINDSIGHT NOW
“Visually unusual and emotionally satisfying.”—New York Times
"In an evening rich in imagination and musicality, Myer proved she is a creative force to be reckoned with."—The Boston Globe
Renowned for her physically and visually innovative choreography, Anna Myer and Dancers celebrate 20 years of outstanding dance performance. Her current work, Hoop Suite, is a heart-pounding inner-city rap-opera that features inner-city teen artists from the North American Family Institute’s Youth Link and combines hip-hop, modern dance, violins, cellos, and basketballs. The company will also perform the world premiere of Hindsight Now, an emotionally charged work about transformation. Nine dancers and three cellists, led by noted Venezuelan composer Paul Desenne, interact on stage with high-tech sets and "cello carts" designed by Emmy Award–winning set and production designer Katha Seidman.
