Pam Tanowitz Dance returns to Cleveland to close the 2021 Season with renowned pianist, Simone Dinnerstein. The company will perform one of their most highly regarded works, “NEW WORK FOR GOLDBERG VARIATIONS”. Premiered in 2017 to rave reviews. The piece deconstructs classical, formal and traditional movement vocabularies and converses with Bach’s iconic score in a delightful interplay of rhythm, style and idiosyncrasy. Shifting between encoded gestures and virtuosic dancing the movement explores Goldberg’s musical architecture. The piece was called a “rare achievement” (The New York Times). As a choreographer, Pam Tanowitz is known for her abstract treatment of classical and contemporary movement ideas.Pam Tanowitz Dance has been selected by the New York Times Best of Dance series in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2017 and 2018.
“Ms. Tanowitz has long been one of the most formally brilliant choreographers around. ‘New Work’…makes full use of her formal skills.” – The New York Times
