Doug Varone and Dancers

Chapters from a Broken Novel

Wednesday, November 17, 2010 at 8 pm, Kenan Auditorium

Post-performance Talk Back with the artists

Doug Varone & Dancers takes the UNCW stage with charismatic, lyrical and lushmovement. The program opens with Lux, an energetic work that embodies Varone's signature flowing movement style set to Philip Glass' The Light. Varone's newest work, Chapters from a Broken Novel, set to music by award-winning composer David Van Tieghem (Broadway'sDoubt, Frozen, etc.), was created from snippets of conversation, phrases, found quotes and images that Varone gathered over many years. He then crafted them into a work embodying his signature style: physical, witty and full of pathos.

Varone's ability to convey depths of emotion through highly charged, physically exciting choreography has made him a rarity among his generation. -- The New York Times
