     I was thrilled to photograph the 20th anniversary season of The Buglisi Dance Theatre last week. The 2 programs included four premieres: This Is Forever, Snow Falling on Water, Butterflies and Demons, and Zjawa (by Katarzyna Skarpetwoska, who was a student of Buglisi’s at Juilliard). Guest artists are Martine van Hamel and Charles Askegard.

 
I have been photographing the company for years – so celebrating and making images from  this wonderful anniversary season, the culmination of so much work by the whole company  was pure joy.  

The Buglisi Dance Theatre’s Benefit Fete d’Amour

As a preview to their 17th anniversary season on February 15-20th, at The Joyce Theater, The Buglisi Dance Theatre performed at the Cultural Services of the French Embassy for the DBT’s benefit ‘Fete ‘d Amour’ on Thursday, December 9th. The celebration of love will unfold this Valentine’s week as DBT performs the world premiere of  ‘Letters of Love on Ripped Paper’. The piece is inspired by letters between legendary lovers, such as Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, Napoleon and Josephine, and is set to an original score by Daniel Brewbaker.
