David Gordon’s Ballet “Trying Times (Remembered)” at LA’s REDCAT Dec. 3-7

November 30, 2008


David Gordon’s landmark Trying Times purposefully “anti-signature” piece, linking a range of movement, visual devices and dialogue to weave a course between droll off-handedness and precisely calibrated design, comes to LA’s REDCAT Theater next week, playing Weds-Sat at 8:30pm and Sunday at 3pm–and Art Predator will be there!

The  REDCAT’s website further describes the dance “Trying Times” by David Gordon:

Mischievously set to the complete score of Igor Stravinsky’s Apollo, the ballet that became one of George Balanchine’s signature works, Trying Times unfolds as a sly recasting of postmodernism, asking questions of both Gordon’s own pioneering use of “talking dance” and downtown art’s dogged refusal of classical forms.

Following this engagement in LA, the production moves to NY for two weeks.

There’s a lot of great theatrical experiences to be had in the LA area, believe it or not. But this one will get me in the car to fight the traffic. I am confident it will be worth it! You don’t want to miss out– get your tickets today!

    Wow, didn’t realize this was David GordOn– loved his work amazing Valda is still dancing– well, even Merce takes the stage in his wheelchair, I read…I did choreography workshops with fellow Grand Union founder-members Steve Paxton & Trisha Brown, but never got a chance to try out for a gig with my namesake…a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…greetings from Muddhouse Coffee House, BTW–@ zip 91307
