The Boston Conservatory Dance Theater will be part of the Bank of America Celebrity Series Boston Marquee with a program of “Three Modern Masters.” The program will feature Alwin Nikolais’ Tensile Involvement and Noumenon Mobilius, Martha Graham’s Diversion of Angels, staged by former Graham dancer Yuriko, and Murray Louis’ Four Brubeck Pieces.

Boston, MA (PRWEB) December 23, 2004 -- The Boston Conservatory Dance Theater will be part of the Bank of America Celebrity Series Boston Marquee with a program of “Three Modern Masters.” The program will feature Alwin Nikolais’ Tensile Involvement and Noumenon Mobilius, Martha Graham’s Diversion of Angels, staged by former Graham dancer Yuriko, and Murray Louis’ Four Brubeck Pieces. Performances take place at The Boston Conservatory Theater, 31 Hemenway Street in Boston, Feb. 17 – 19, 2005 at 8:00 p.m., with a matinee on Feb. 20 at 2:00 p.m.* Tickets are $16 general admission, $14 for senior citizens, and $5 for students. Box Office: 617-912-9222.

Yuriko will return to The Boston Conservatory to stage Martha Graham’s 1948 work Diversion of Angels. Yuriko, who celebrates her 85th birthday in Feb. 2005, was a long-time principal dancer in the Martha Graham Company. Last year, she worked with The Boston Conservatory Dance Theater to stage Graham’s Primitive Mysteries, which marked the first time the piece had been performed by any company other than Graham’s. In 2000, Boston Conservatory Dance Theater’s performance of Appalachian Spring, marked the first time that any student company had been allowed to stage a Graham work. Diversion of Angels will be accompanied by The Boston Conservatory Orchestra.

Tensile Involvement and Noumenon Mobilius, both 1953 works of Nikolais, are considered signature pieces. Originally choreographed for three dancers, but now performed by eight, Tensile Involvement requires intense ensemble precision to achieve its kinetic energy. The slightly earlier Noumenon Mobilius marked the beginning of Nikolais’s abstract investigation. Two dancers are encased in stretchy fabric to achieve a study in sculptural mobility. One of the three dancers that Noumenon Mobilius was originally choreographed for was Murray Louis, whose jubilant Four Brubeck Pieces closes the show. Boston Magazine described The Boston Conservatory's 2002 production of Murray Louis' Four Brubeck Pieces as "high -octane dancers careening...through a mélange of moods with uncanny finesse...exuberance at the breaking point," and named the company “Best of Boston.” The Nikolais and Louis works will be staged by Alberto del Saz, Artistic Director and Repertory Director of the Nikolais-Louis Foundation for Dance, Inc.

The Boston Conservatory Dance Theater performs under the artistic direction of Yasuko Tokunaga, and presents masterpieces and new works in both ballet and modern dance. It was named the Best of Boston by Boston Magazine 2002.

The Boston Conservatory trains exceptional young performing artists for careers that enrich and transform the human experience. Known for its intimate and supportive multi-disciplinary environment, the Conservatory offers fully accredited graduate and undergraduate programs in Music, Dance, Theater, and Music Education, and presents over 200 performances each year by students, faculty, and guest artists. Since its founding in 1867, The Boston Conservatory has shared its talent and creativity with the city of Boston, the region, and the nation, and continues to grow today as a vibrant community of artists and educators.
