Lionel Popkin Dance
"Ruth Doesn't Live Here Anymore"
Saturday, November 9
7 p.m., Kenan Auditorium
“inordinately engaging...”—Washington Post
Inspired by the career of modern dance pioneer Ruth St. Denis, “Ruth Doesn’t Live Here Anymore” strives to address acts of cultural sourcing, representation, and transmission. LA based choreographer Lionel Popkin—along with two other dancers, two musicians, a stage full of saris, projections, video, and even a leaf blower—explores the St. Denis’ career. This contemporary dance performance features an original score by Guy Klucevsek for accordion and violin performed live.
