Boundless Edge Holiday Show
Contemporary Dance on Ice Dramatic and Theatrical
Saturday December 17th, 7:00PM, 2011 – Kiwanis Ice Arena in Saugerties
The Boundless Edge Ice Dance Ensemble will open our 9th season with a performance at our home rink, in Saugerties. This season we are reviving some of our most popular ensemble and solo works created by Boundless Edge Founder, Beth Woronoff during the past fifteen years.
In chronological order “Red”, first created and performed by Ms. Woronoff in 1996. This Graham inspired work was shown at many Ice Theatre of New York performances including several memorable ones at Rockefeller Center. This time, seventeen year old Saugerties native, Sara Forsythe will be wearing the ankle length red dress and skating the original choreography. The next oldest piece is skated to the Bach Cello Suites, we will show “Lightness” which is the first part of “Six Arcs of a Circle” This work was created in 1997 during the first Chelsea Piers/Sky Rink Artist in Residence Ice Grant and will now be performed by twelve year old Ana Alexander.
Now we jump to 2006 and a piece entitled “My Kind of Blue” and yes it is set to Miles Davis’ “All Blues”. Originally performed by Ms. Woronoff she will once again entertain the audience with her fast spins and fanciful footwork that responds to and drives the wobble of the saxophone. Created the following year in 2007 the ensemble will perform “Don’t Break Down”. The 6 skaters in this fun and girlish piece will lift your spirits as will “Celtic Techno” which entered our repertoire the following year, disciplined Irish steps are contrasted with contemporary gestures in a mix which will delight. “Volcano” is a new born, just created last season. This dynamic trio depicts female warriors defending their territory each of which has her own unique skating prowess. In addition we will have two new works as yet unnamed also a Special Guest from NYC will perform, to be announced soon.
