Summary

The Visions + Voices Global Performance Series is NYU Skirball Center's thrilling new program highlighting international artists from a chosen locale.

Tao Dance Theatre "4" & "5"
February 20 - 23, 2014
4 is a continuation of the choreographer's exploration of the potential of the human body as a visual element, devoid of story-telling or representation. Four dancers seem to be propelled by a magnetic wave that sometimes pulls them apart, and then seems to push them together again, without ever touching. In 5, which premiered in Amsterdam in 2013 to standing ovations, the dancers do engage in physical contact, in fact move in an indistinguishable kaleidoscopic mass of limbs and light, never dispersing even for a moment.

Hedda
February 25, 2014
Hedda (based on Hedda Gabler) focuses on a highly intelligent woman, recently wed for practicality rather than love, whose jealousy leads her down a path to tragedy.

The Lady from the Sea
February 26, 2014
The Lady from the Sea examines a woman in a strained marriage, asked for the first time to truly examine her own desires

Richard III
March 26 - 30, 2014
Performed in Putonghua, or Mandarin, with English supertitles, the play's fundamental themes of desire, power, ambition and jealousy, are potent reminders of humanity’s ongoing struggles. Shakespeare’s classic, Richard III, marks National Theatre of China’s first visit to the United States. Their trailblazing productions reveal the new face of 21st century Chinese theatre.
