Doug Varone and Dancers: “Stripped/Dressed” featuring “Rise” and “Carrugi”
Ticket Price: $25 for General Public, $21 for Senior Citizens, Wesleyan Staff & Student, and Non- Wesleyan Students, $6 for Wesleyan Students

 The return of Doug Varone and Dancers to Wesleyan is designed to give the audience an intimate look at Doug Varone's work. The first half of the program, Stripped, opens with his masterpiece Rise (1993), with music by John Adams, and the dancers in rehearsal clothes under minimal lighting. Mr. Varone then comes onstage to walk through the creative process that gave birth to his most recent work, Carrugi (2012), deconstructing the dance and showing how he works with dancers to build the choreography. For the second half of the program, Dressed, the company returns in costume and performs the fully-produced Connecticut premiere of Carrugi. Inspired by the winding, narrow streets and alleyways of the Liguria region of the northwest coast of Italy, Carrugi is set to the oratorio "La Betulia Liberata" by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

A Breaking Ground Dance Series event presented by the Dance Department and the Center for the Arts.
