ICA and WORLD MUSIC/CRASHarts PRESENT

Armitage Gone! Dance

Ligeti Essays and Rave

Dubbed the “Punk Ballerina” in the '80s and recently nominated for a Tony Award for choreography for the Broadway musical Hair, Karole Armitage is known for pushing boundaries. Rave, a celebratory happening for 26 dancers, including 18 outstanding students from the Boston Conservatory, mixes dance, capoeira, voguing, Chinese martial arts, catwalk, iconic costumes, and body paint; Ligeti Essays is a poetic journey through a series of dance dreamscapes set to jewel-like song cycles by the late György Ligeti. This performance contains nudity.
