Chiaroscuro locates its six cast members between light and shadow as their weaving patterns unfold in complex interactions.
Lynne Taylor-Corbett’s Chiaroscuro was made for the Diamond Project in 1994. In visual art, the term “chiaroscuro” refers to the play of light and shadow to give the illusion of three dimensions. The ballet for six dancers is also a work of light and shadow in its alternating fast and slow movements, the concerto grosso by the Baroque composer Francesco Geminiani La Follia. Taylor-Corbett’s second work for NYCB, Chiaroscuro features onstage artwork by American artist Michael Zansky, costumes by Holly Hynes, and lighting by Mark Stanley.
