Set to selections composed for orchestra and jazz quartet, eight dancers in cool-tones playfully show off an unwavering sense of musicality through varying sections of fast footwork and introspective contemporary movement to match the Wayne Shorter score.
Jamar Roberts’ Emanon – In Two Movements is set to Pegasus and Prometheus Unbound from Wayne Shorter’s Emanon. The Resident Choreographer of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Roberts previously created a piece for film, Water Rite, as part of NYCB’s digital New Works Festival in 2020. With a cast of eight dancers, Emanon – In Two Movements is his first stage work for NYCB, and features costume design by Jermaine Terry, and set and lighting design by Brandon Stirling Baker.
