DOUG VARONE AND DANCERS

DURHAM PERFORMING ARTS CENTER, DURHAM

FRIDAY, JULY 24–SATURDAY, JULY 25

Doug Varone's latest obsession is the pastel work of Abstract Expressionist painter Joan Mitchell. "She used pastels in a way I have not seen anyone do. Their energy almost has a 3-D quality," Varone told the INDY. "She builds a palette and then pushes away from it; there's a world behind the color up front." In the premiere of ReComposed, Varone explores those worlds through contemporary dance. "I am looking at these images and taking from them their energy, color, line, form, space and negative space," he says. "I am understanding what makes her compositions so poignant and recomposing that in bodies and space." The program also includes The Fabulist, Varone's 2014 solo interweaving narrative, light, shadow and silence, and 2006's triumphant ensemble work, Lux. Bang on a Can co-founders Michael Gordon and David Lang provide music for two of the pieces, while the other is set to music by Philip Glass. —Byron Woods
