THIS WEEK AT ADF

COMPANY WANG RAMIREZ/FOOTPRINTS

"Borderline," by American Dance Festival school alum Madonna (really!), epitomizes romantic tension: "Don't you know you drive me crazy? You just keep on pushing my love over the borderline." This week, Company Wang Ramirez—known for melding hip-hop and contemporary movement—performs a piece titled after the song at ADF (DPAC, July 22–23, $10–$58). Incidentally, the company also choreographed and performed in Madonna's recent Rebel Heart tour. Borderline (2013) is danced, partly, in midair, with performers attached to cables that draw them close and then quickly pull them apart, in a work that investigates freedom and constraint. And, later this week, the festival's now-annual Footprints program (Reynolds Industries Theater, July 25–27, $10–$35) gives noted choreographers time and space to set new work on ADF students, and the fruit of their labors comes to the stage this week. We're especially keen on the formalist, perception-bending imprint of Beth Gill's dances. New works by Dafi Altabeb, who showed an affecting duet in the 5 by 5 program, and the energetic, lush movement of Lee Sher and Saar Harari round out the program. —Michaela Dwyer
