Raimund Hoghe
Pas de Deux

Wednesday, October 10–Friday , October 12
at 7:30pm

Baryshnikov Arts Center

Co-presented with Baryshnikov Arts Center

A term emblematic of 19th-century virtuoso classical dance, the pas de deux, danced by couples, is the crowning moment in classical ballet. Raimund Hoghe’s Pas de Deux with Japanese dancer Takashi Ueno is, in its own way, virtuosic. The hand and arm movements—bold up and down strokes tracing words in the air—can be seen to represent an anthology of dance, beautifully encapsulating the art form’s array of gestures. The two dancers move together in isolation, subtly revealing their worlds.
