WOMEN ON THE EDGE

Rioult Dance NY

WOMEN ON THE EDGE…Unsung Heroines of the Trojan War is a trilogy of dances inspired by Euripides’ tragic heroines Iphigenia, Helen of Troy, and Cassandra. Pascal Rioult’s interpretations of these timeless stories highlight not only grace, strength, and resilience of women in society but also the futility and immorality of war. The program includes Iphigenia, On Distant Shores, and Cassandra’s Curse set to commissioned music by contemporary American composers Michael Torke, Aaron Kernis, and Richard Danielpour respectively.

Founded in 1994, RIOULT Dance NY fast became an established name in modern dance with a reputation for presenting the sensual, articulate, and exquisitely musical works of Pascal Rioult. The New York City-­‐based dance company presents an annual New York season, tours internationally, conducts extensive in-­‐school arts education and community outreach programs, and offers dance training to the public through classes, workshops, and intensives.
