We need you help to support the reconstruction of Anna Sokolow's Lyric Suite for the Ensemble December season!

Artistic Director Jim May and the Anna Sokolow Theatre/Dance Ensemble is seeking support for the company's reconstruction of choreographer Anna Sokolow's  work Lyric Suite (1953) last performed in 1991. Lyric Suite premiered in Mexico City in 1953 and presented in New York City the following year. Louis Horst in Dance Observer wrote, “It is one of the finest examples of lyric theater dance. It speaks in abstract and stark simplicity, translating the qualitative moods of the music into penetrating and evocative movement designs. Superbly choreographed and thoroughly integrated with the music, its lyric beauty has a direct appeal to kinesthetic response". Thirty minutes in length, it draws on Ms. Sokolow’s twenty years of solo dancing. Ms. Sokolow regarded Lyric Suite as an artistic turning point in which she found a language of movement all her own, one which allowed her to express her deepest feelings as an artist.
 
Please help us bring this classic work of modern dance back to the stage. Your donation will go directly to supporting the dancers and help cover the costs of producing.
