Legends and Heroes

Guest choreographers, composers, performers and premieres will play a part in Kanopy Dance Company’s Legends and Heroes concert.

Featured among the guests is Ede Thurrell of NYC who will perform her recent work “Living End l" (2004), inspired by Isadora Duncan and set to music by David Bowie. Ede Thurrell’s choreography for a duet “Living End ll" (2004), will be performed by Yoshie Fugimoto Kateada and Robert E. Cleary, also to Bowie’s music. Ede Thurrell will also dance “bonewash (2004)” an homage to Martha Graham, created by NYC choreographer Stanley Love, to music by Laura Nyro and The LaBelles. Costumes are by David Quinn of NYC, a Wisconsin native.

Robert E. Cleary’s new work for the Kanopy Dance Company is entitled “Endtime.” Its premiere introduces new music by Madison composer Thomas Powell. Music by Middleton composer, Vicky Tzoumerka-Knoedler is the setting for Lisa Thurrell’s “Medea.” For “Cassandra’s Cry,” another work on a theme from antiquity, Lisa Thurrell has chosen music by Philip Glass.
