Emmanuelle Huynh-Company Mua Cribles/Wild Governors



  • Parade Ground, Governors Island (map)

Cribles/Wild, originally premiered outdoors in 2010, is a “May Pole” dance with ten local choreographed dancers exploring the round—a simple, archaic form that so often serves as a vehicle for celebrations, rites and rituals. Performed to Iannis Xenakis’ Persephassa for six percussionists, the piece makes powerful use of the composers’ spatial architectures and ultimately wonders whether we can see music and hear dance.
