Black Grace

When: Tue., April 11, 8 p.m. 2017

Don't let the company name fool you. In the rough New Zealand town where choreographer Neil Ieremia grew up, the word "black" was linked to the national rugby team, the All Blacks. It was used as slang terminology for the boldest and most daring acts. Standing up to the school bully was black; so was asking someone out of your league on a date. The bold and daring grace Ieremia has pursued in the twenty-two-year history of his world-renowned company fuses native Pacific Island and Samoan dance forms with modern dance and martial arts. Critics have praised the repertory works excerpted in the ritualized Pati Pati and the new exploration of male emotional non-disclosure in Crying Men. —Byron Woods
