RUN FALL RUN: Original Music & Choreography --- Ariane Miyasaki & Elizabeth Schmuhl | Numéro Cinq
I’m very proud of this one, almost paternal: A Numéro Cinq first, an original piece of music by Ariane Miyasaki combined with an original dance choreographed and performed by Elizabeth Schmuhl, commissioned specially for Numéro Cinq. In other words, the first NC ballet, presented here on video, a grainy, fixed-camera production that is itself part of the finished work, an edgy, alienated, even terrifying orchestral composition for female voices based on a text written by Miyasaki when she was seventeen, after she had lived wild for four years on the streets of Seattle.
