Rioult Dance NYConcerts & Performances
In their Arsht Center debut, Rioult Dance NY will present four acclaimed works from their vast and varied repertory: Fleeting World, inspired by the ancient woodblock prints of Japanese master Hiroshige and the ingenious structure of J. S. Bach’s “The Art of Fugue,” explores the ephemeral quality of living things and the eternal cycle of life. Wien, a darkly fascinating take on Ravel and the Viennese Waltz, is the very image of social refinement which becomes the symbol of social disarray and decay. City explores the human spirit in the built environment sporting dramatic projections as the scene-scape. Bolero is a bold and distinctive interpretation of Ravel’s famous score and a riveting tour de force. With a reputation for bringing the sensual, articulate, and musical dance works of Pascal Rioult to audiences worldwide, the 10-dancer company, based in New York City, is led by husband-and-wife team Pascal Rioult and Joyce Herring ― both former Martha Graham Dance Company principal dancers. With an established repertoire of over 40 dances that expands each year, Rioult Dance NY presents an annual New York Season and tours nationally and abroad.
