26, 27 April 2006. In In this dream that dogs me, choreography by Karole Armitage. She first caught the attention of critics and audiences as one of the quintessential interpreters of Merce Cunninghams dances and as the muse for many of his masterpieces in the mid-1970s and early 1980s. Then when she began choreographingwhile still a Cunningham dancerthe press christened her The Punk Ballerina. Her subsequent collaborations with some of the most important visual and musical artists of her generation added yet another dimension to her reputation as a singular and spiky talent who has combined the physical rigour of ballet with the spatial imagination of modern dance. Drawing upon, combining and recombining the vocabularies of kung fu, capoeira, yoga, Bharatanatyam, vogueing and ballet, the dance explores the tension between harmony and cacophony, stability and instability, balance and imbalance. The performers represent a wide range of cultural and dance backgrounds.
