Rules of the Game

Rules of the Game

Choreographer Jonah Bokaer’s precise and elegant movement aesthetic animates Daniel Arsham’s space-manipulating architectural environments in this evening of three works, celebrating a decade of collaboration between the two. The program leads with Bokaer’s masterful technique on full display in his signature solo RECESS (2010), followed by Why Patterns (2011), set to Morton Feldman’s eponymous 1978 score, in which four dancers play unpredictable games with 10,000 ping-pong balls.An original score by Pharrell Williams for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra sets the tone in Rules Of The Game (2016), a new work for eight dancers inspired by the absurdist play of the same name by Luigi Pirandello, and set in Arsham’s surreal multimedia environment.
