RIOULT Dance NY

A glance at his résumé suggests Pascal Rioult is a strictly modern choreographer. Before founding his troupe in 1994, he was a principal with modern dance matriarch Martha Graham's company. The traces show, but Rioult's dances toggle the new and the old in style and theme. In the trilogy program WOMEN ON THE EDGE..., arriving at ADF this week, the result registers somewhere between historical revision and reimagination. Across the three works—one a new commission (Cassandra's Curse)—Rioult elevates the tragic heroines of Euripedes's Greek tragedies in an antiwar statement. Itching for more than a post-performance talk-back? On July 20, Rioult will also join Peter H. Burian, Duke Professor Emeritus of Classical Studies, for a discussion in Duke's Nelson Music Room. —Michaela Dwyer
