Philip Glass Glass Pieces
Synopsis:
Choroegrapher Jerome Robbins mashes concepts from postmodern dance into the traditional ballet vocabulary, infusing the work with a distinctly urban energy. The reoccuring rhythms, continuous momentum, and endlessly shifting patterns of the ensemble combine to create a physical architecture for Glass’s music. Glass Pieces uses Philip Glass' ‘Rubric’ and ‘Façades’ from “Glassworks” and excerpts from his opera “Akhnaten.” It premiered in 1983 with New York City Ballet.
