Rioult Dance “Views of the Fleeting World”

What I saw last night. Rioult Dance at the Joyce Theater. Again. IMG_4381First a woman behind a platform extends her arms to the sky. Others join her. The second piece two women stand on platforms and sort of mirror each other eventually getting down to the stage. The  third piece two men and a woman enact scenes from the bible with minimal props. The final part has multiple chapters bracketed between sounds of water lapping or birds chirping. Like watching a dance at a spa.

Elements: platforms, masks, cross, screen, belt, film
Titles:“Suspension”  by May O’ Donnell “Black Diamond” “El Penitente” by Martha Graham “Views of the Fleeting World”
