  • Doug Varone and Dancers

    “Doug Varone and Dancers” celebrate 30 years of impassioned choreography with three works representing the past, present, and future of this peerless company. Their major revival of the Philip Glass-scored “Possession,” inspired by A.S. Byatt’s century-spanning novel of the same name, is an entwined portrait of solitude and desire. Varone’s latest work, “Folded,” set to music by MacArthur fellow Julia Wolfe, renders the intimate interplay between two dancers falling in and out of sync. And in “ReComposed,” inspired by abstract expressionist Joan Mitchell’s pastel drawings, dancers careen across a paper-white stage to the crescendos of Michael Gordon’s “Dystopia.”
